From Relationship Ruts to Quality Connections
The way we were
If you're reading this, chances are you may be wondering about the future of your relationship. Perhaps you are having trouble recovering from an affair, or are just finding it hard to connect the way you used to. Maybe the in-laws are making things difficult or different attitudes about money are getting in the way. Relationship challenges can often leave us feeling a wide range of emotions - bored, lonely, afraid, frustrated, hopeless, exhausted - the list is endless. Sometimes they even make us feel like failures.
Do you want a relationship like you had in the beginning when you seemed to understand each other and instinctively knew how to be in the relationship? Do you want a way to work out relationship disagreements and difficulties without spiraling into conflict and disconnection? Do you want to experience mutual respect and support with each of you knowing your relationship is of primary importance to the other?
What's getting in the way?
Relationship hurdles can include:
- A lack of communication or intimacy with your partner
- Insufficient sexual chemistry
- A feeling that you have nothing in common
- Control or manipulation issues
- Shadows from the past
- Boundary violations
