What Family Culture are you creating?
Every family has culture that guides their interactions. Your family culture is simply what you see and expect from others. Basically, there are two relationship cultures - a Culture of Blame and a Culture of Responsibility. Since behavior is driven by the culture we are part of, the Success of our families depends on which culture we create.
The Culture of Disconnection and Blame
"When we see others as the problem, that is the problem." - Mike Merchant, Senior Consultant for the Arbinger Institute
The Culture of Disconnection and Blame is driven by the loss of trust in relationships. This can happen quickly with strangers, or be reinforced over time in families and communities. Disconnection with others leads to dysregulation of our emotions and behaviors. Isolation and manipulation toward others become common. Our conduct becomes unhealthy to compensate for the lack of connection we have, yet ultimately hold others responsible for negativity in our lives. We get stuck believing if the others would change, everything would get better.
The Culture of (re)Connection and Trust
"Change and success only happens when I take responsibility for my own choices" - Shawn Breeden, founder of Forward Walking
The Culture of (re)Connection is marked by optimism, even in difficult times. We see and connect with others in meaningful ways. Here, individuals constantly consider how we can help others for our collective good. We stop trying to fix others and instead focus on building relationships. Boundaries and expectations guide our relationships and invite cooperations. In short, we learn to see good in others and ourselves.
Aftercare coaching with Forward Walking will teach you to understand which culture your are choosing to create and guide to live by The 4 Rhythms of (re)Connection.
