There is a saying in investing that says, “Buy the dip.” This refers to the practice of buying MORE of the stock you are invested in when that stock goes down in value.
For many people this is counterintuitive. They think, “the stock is going down, I better cut my loses.”
However, if you “buy the dip,” you can “average down” your initial investment if you bought in at a higher price. Or you can buy more shares of the stock “on-sale” believing that the stock WILL go up in value at a later date.
But what about relationships.
What if you applied the same principle in relationships.
You have an argument or a major disagreement with someone. The “stock price” of that relationship goes down.
Our initial response is similar to the stock market, “I need to cut my loses.” So you distance yourself from the relationship. Or you think about divorce or quitting your job or running out.
BUT WHAT IF YOU BOUGHT THE DIP
What if you invest MORE in the relationship.
