Being Australian and belonging to a country, a community, a family or a couple is important to every person no matter what age you are. Unfortunately many Australians find that this Australia day that they are alone, or feel that it is difficult to belong. As human beings we invest our emotions and energy into relationships that often provide little reward, nor support in times of difficulty.
One of the most common ways to protect your emotional health is to have a diverse and rich source of support. The effort taken to overcome cognitive barriers to developing such relationships can be overwhelming when there is trauma or hurt from past relationships. Just like rebuilding after a flood, rebuilding relationships can led to a more solid foundation than before. New relationships may not feel as comfortable as the old, but perhaps can serve the purpose of providing more effect support than in the past.
