Interacting with others can, at times, seem like a double edged sword. They can be a source of joy or a source of unhappiness. As we interact with the world some of our stress will inevitably come from other people. Good communication skills and an understanding of self will benefit any person already in a relationship or serious about getting involved in one.
Experiences from childhood often resurface during our adult life. You may be finding it difficult to trust your partner or perhaps you are struggling with commitment. You may be finding it difficult to show your emotions or struggling with issues of authority and control within the relationship. Many such issues can be traced back to childhood.
Every relationship needs a solid foundation in order to survive the stresses and strains of life. Unless you begin to love yourself, it may be hard for someone else to love you. In the most successful relationships couples learn to communicate, grow, adapt and change together. Even in long term relationships individuals can find it difficult to talk openly to their partner preferring to avoid discussing certain subjects.
Some common relationship problems:
- Job loss
- Sex and Romance
- Midlife crisis
- Addictive behaviours
- Domestic violence
- Irritating habits
- Control issues
"Write the bad things that happen to you in sand, write the good things that happen to you in marble".
