Relationships, especially long-term ones, can be a bumpy ride. At times painful. The same problems keep popping up over and over again. Communication with your partner gets frosty. Little problems quickly grow into major dramas. Before you know it, your relationship is at a standstill. You feel stuck. The future looks foggy. Now you find yourself endlessly worrying about your broken relationship’s impact on family and friends, finances and job, and whether you’re spiraling towards separation. If that’s you, you’re not alone. Many of us have been right where you are. You’re probably experiencing wave after wave of emotions. You may feel embarrassed, ashamed, angry, sad, frustrated, resentful, or even helpless.
WHAT WENT WRONG?
When couples reach this point there’s a lot of self-questioning and wondering. What went wrong? How did it turn out like this? Why are all my hopes and dreams being dashed? What can I do to rescue my relationship? The thing is, even when there’s the best of intentions between couples to repair a relationship, they often don’t know where to start, nor do they have the special skills to work their way through hard to control human emotions and other complex challenges. It may seem like you’re in a very difficult and confusing dilemma. It’s especially not made easy when each partner knows the other partner’s weaknesses and vulnerabilities. But no matter how hard a situation you’re in, reach out, there is support, there are people who can help you get through this.
