So, as I began saying in the introduction, a lot of clients have recently reached out to me asking about their relationships with their significant others who are either considerably older or considerably younger than they are. One client, in particular, Robert, asked me if the advice that he was reading on our website applied to his situation as well. He is dating someone fifteen years younger than him and he was wondering about whether our philosophy and tools would apply to him or if he was an exception given the nature of his relationship.
As I told him, the answer was YES, our advice is applicable to relationships with a large age gap as well! If you are in a relationship with a person that you love, a person that inspires you, and a person you want to make happy, then our advice is relevant to you.
The thing I want to bring your attention to has more to do with a common issue that I see when there is an age gap in the relationship. I often see that people are worried about other people passing judgment, or they focus on seeking approval from their peers and family members. When this happens, it becomes considerably harder to establish a truly fulfilling relationship and it’s such a shame because it doesn’t have to be like this!
We always tell our clients that it’s not about what other people might think of your relationship, it’s about focusing on what you can control. People will always have an opinion about the things you do, so why not focus on what brings you the most joy regardless of their opinions. Don’t let your fears and your emotions drive your decisions and your actions. Focus more on your sense of wellbeing and how you can continue to cultivate it.
