How To Handle Your Relationships When You Change To A Raw Food Diet

Author : Andrew Collinson

Changing your diet is a big event in your life and will have an impact on the relationship you have with your partner."Do you really think this is wise" they will say

When you come together there are many things you may think should stay the same if the relationship is to last,though of course we know everybody changes.We would get bored if we did not.

Nonetheless food is part of all our lives and in a relationship eating is a time when can just be together.Either a meal at home or when we go out to a restaurant.

The whole shopping routine is a together moment also, as you wander up and down the rows of food,hopefully in harmony about what you will eat for the next week or so.

But then one day you decide to change and all these events have the potential for conflict.You don't even want to go to the supermarket anymore,because there is nothing there you want.From now on it is the health food store and the organic shop.

You will feel like the odd one who has to be careful about what you say and do around your partner, who of course is still eating "normal" food.

But if a relationship is to thrive there must be freedom of expression.If feelings are kept inside they will just fester and drain the energy from the body.You may start to lose enthusiasm for your new diet and drift back to the old ways just to keep your partner happy.

Don't hold back on your enthusiasm about raw food.Your partner will see how you are changing for the better and should be happy for you.If they are not, well there is some deeper problem in the relationship.

Being able to change diet and face whatever reaction you get from your partner comes form self love.If you have that you will stand firm in your beliefs.Too many relationships are the co-dependent type where you need the approval of the other to stay happy.

Be in love with yourself and you can overcome any criticism from your partner.Then all the addictions you have will fall away.

Before those addictions were born out of a need to please someone outside of ourselves.We think that only when others love us can we love ourselves.Let go of that belief and the addictions will end.

It may be best to manage your diet changes in a calm and steady manner so that your partner does not feel overwhelmed.But in the end if they do not come along for the ride then there are plenty of people out there who have made the change and would love to connect with you.
