How To Cope When Your Relationship Ends

As we enter a relationship with the best of intentions and desire that it will work out, we are not focused on it ending. Instead we are enjoying how great the other person is and how happy we are feeling.

 

However, when a relationship falls apart due to a lack of communication, lifestyle differences, or old emotional wounds sabotaging it, there is only one thing to do….heal!

 

To begin, as a relationship and marriage advocate, I always encourage all those I work with to try everything to heal their relationship first before throwing it away. There is relationship help available through books and professionals who specialize in healing relationships.

 

If the relationship cannot be saved then allowing the natural grieving process to occur is the next step.

 

This process is filled with many different emotional states, which are difficult for many to handle. Due to this, people will try to avoid the pain by escaping into other things such as their work, food, alcohol, drugs, another relationship, shopping etc.  Unfortunately, all this really ends up doing is causing more issues and postponing their healing process from occurring.

 

This may sound counter intuitive but the best relationship help in this situation is to allow oneself to go through the following grieving stages: denial, bargaining, anger, depression, and acceptance.

 

When you allow yourself to go through this, heal and let go, you are able to move on from a whole place rather than a broken place.

 

Of course getting assistance to get through a break up is always a good thing! You never have to face things alone as there is always help available to you.

Relationship Help For Couples Dealing With Money Problems

 

 

 

Dealing with money problems is one of the main culprits in the break down of a relationship. When people are faced with the incredible stress of not having enough money to meet the bills, their whole life is negatively affected.

Everything from their health to relationship takes a hard hit when these stressors are not handled in a healthy manner.

So how can a couple face down money problems and keep their relationship in tact?

It’s Simple…communication, communication, communication!

When a man or a woman bottles up everything they are feeling inside, it is never beneficial to the person or their partner. One must have the courage to share with their partner how they are feeling about the issue at hand.

For instance, sharing this, “Honey, I am feeling so scared and overwhelmed about our finances” opens the door to communication versus exploding in an inappropriate way like, “You are so selfish you are always spending all of our money!”

Effective communication is vital in any healthy relationship. It is literally one of the cornerstones for a lasting relationship.  The problem is that many couples just do not know how to communicate their thoughts, feelings, and concerns with one another. They end up talking to friends and family for help but usually end up with well-meaning but misguided advice.

The best relationship help a couple can get is to learn how to communicate not just about money but about everything. Of course, if a couple is having financial difficulties hiring a professional is usually not a realistic option. So what can they do?

I highly recommend making a very little investment into the It’s That Simple! relationship books for men and women. These books guide a couple through a simple yet powerful step-by-step process to have a healthy and happy relationship. There is an entire chapter just on effective communication that teaches men and women how to speak with one another and resolve their conflicts.

What if you are a reader but your partner is not. No problem! Just as long as one partner is reading the book, positive changes can be made in their relationship.

Need Relationship Help To Save Your Relationship?

 

 

 

Relationship Help Is Here!

In my experience many men and women in relationships that is not working feel there is no hope when that is not the case at all. Outside some specific situations of abuse or addiction, there is always a way to repair and rebuild a relationship.

Once a couple understands that there is help available to them they can breathe a sigh of relief and move on towards healing their relationship!

 

Relationship Help To Save Your Relationship Tip #1:

Determine The Level Of Help Needed!

There are many different forms of help a couple can seek out. The first step is to figure out what condition their relationship is currently in.

This step entails taking an honest look at the levels of communication, emotional and physical intimacy, and overall wellbeing the relationship is experiencing.

This can more easily be done if you use this quick grading scale from 0-10. On this scale, zero represents a complete and total break down in the relationship while ten corresponds to the ultimate dream relationship. Take a moment and rate your relationship now.

 

Relationship Help To Save Your Relationship Tip #2:

Six & Above Rating!

For those relationships operating at a six or higher level turning towards a relationship help book is a great first step.

When writing the It’s That Simple! books for couples I had this type of relationship in mind. This couple has the typical problems most relationships or marriages are facing. They still love one another but just are not as happy as they use to be. Their communication has broken down and there may be some fighting going on. Overall, they are functioning but could be so much more incredibly happy together.

If this is where your relationship is at, I highly recommend getting these books for you and your partner now:

 

It’s That Simple! A Man’s Book On Relationships, Ourselves And The Healing of it All

&

It’s That Simple! A Woman’s Book On Relationships, Ourselves And The Healing of it All

 

 

Relationship Help To Save Your Relationship Tip #3:

Zero To Five Rating!

If your relationship is located anywhere on the lower part of the scale you most likely need more intense help.

At this point, bringing in a professional is highly recommended.

There are many types of relationship experts, coaches, and therapist available. Be sure to do your due diligence and research their background and credentials first. After making initial contact with the professional be sure you feel comfortable and are a good fit. This is very important to ensure a higher level of success in repairing your relationship.

When I first speak with an individual or couple who is looking for help, we go through what it is they are having trouble with, how I work with my clients, and if working together will be what is best for them. I work with clients all over the country via the phone or Skype, which allows me to help many different individuals and couples.

 

Relationship Help To Save Your Relationship Tip #4:

Follow Through!

Seeking help and following through with it are two different things completely. Once you have established where your relationship is and what type of help you need, it is vital to take the next steps.

These steps include learning and applying the information and tools gained through either the book or professional each day in your relationship.

Those couples who actively make the changes on a consistent basis are the ones who experience the highest level of success!

Best Relationship Help Books It’s That Simple!

 

 

 

 

Finding Good Relationship Help In A Book!

 

The market is filled with books to help your relationship, so how do you know which is the best? It’s Simple!

 

The It’s That Simple! companion relationship help books are the answer.

 

Author Bree Maresca-Kramer M.A. took her fifteen years of experience working with men and women and created a book for each that helps them save, change, and transform their relationships. She wrote each book in a gender specific language, meaning that women will easily understand the women’s book and men will easily understand the men’s book.

 

The main reason Bree did this was as she puts it, “Men and women learn and process information differently, therefore I wanted to give each gender what they specifically needed to achieve maximum results.”

 

“If I give a man relationship tools the same way I share them with a women, he will not get it and vice-versa,” Bree adds.

 

The It’s That Simple! relationship help books can be read individually by just one partner in a relationship or by both partners. Either way, the reader and the relationship will benefit from the information, guidance, and tools in these incredible books.

 

The reader will learn how to have effective communication with their partner as well as building a healthy relationship with themselves and one another.

 

“A majority of relationship problems stem from men and women projecting onto or taking out their unresolved personal issues on their partner. When this is addressed and then healed the relationship is able to flourish in a whole new way. When men and women look at and heal themselves first, and then move onto their relationship, it works. I have been doing this for a long time, when couples follow this formula they successfully improve their lives and relationship for the better every time!” Bree shared with us.

 

“The bottom line is that I was tired of seeing people who loved one another fall apart when they did not have too. I wanted to be able to help as many couples as I could not just stay together out of obligation but to transform their relationship into a happy and loving one they could enjoy everyday.” Bree added.

Relationship Help To Survive An Infidelity!

 

 

 

Relationship Help

 

When your partner has cheated on you the pain can feel insurmountable. The hurt, anger, and betrayal can be so overwhelming that many cannot function in their normal lives for a while.

Although infidelity is a prevalent element in our society, facing it is never easy. When I work with a couple who are dealing with an infidelity, I guide them through an in-depth discovery and healing process in order to save and transform their broken relationship.

 

Relationship Help With An Infidelity #1:

Willingness!

In order for a relationship to make it through an infidelity, both partners must be willing to do the work. Each must be ready to do this without being forced into it. This must be a mutually voluntarily cooperative process for it to work. If one or both partners are doing this just because they have a sense of obligation to do this, it will not work.

 

Relationship Help With An Infidelity #2:

Commitment!

Once it is established that each partner is freely participating in the healing journey to repair their relationship, there must be an agreed upon commitment between them. When I work with couples with this issue, this step entails making a verbal and sometimes written commitment to one another and the process for a certain period of time. This allows us enough time to address why the infidelity occurred, heal that particular issue, and then move forward in the healing process.

 

Relationship Help With An Infidelity #3:

Forgiveness!

As the couple I am working with moves forward into the repairing and healing part of this work, they must each come to a place of forgiveness.  Each must forgive themselves for their part in the infidelity and then one another for the old resentments and patterns that got them to this place in their relationship. This step is vital in surviving an infidelity for if there is not genuine forgiveness, rebuilding a healthy relationship is near impossible.

 

Relationship Help With An Infidelity #4:

New Beginning!

This is a wonderfully enjoyable part of this process. This is the time I walk the couple through a “falling in love” process. They will be guided on how to rediscover one another and bring back the emotional and physical intimacy into their relationship. By the time the couple has reached this part of the process with me they are well on their way to creating a whole new happy, healthy, and lasting relationship!

Relationship Help For When You Cant Stop Fighting!

 

 

 

Relationship Help

From Relationship Expert Bree Maresca-Kramer M.A.

 

For the most part, when a relationship is filled with fighting, the fighting  is generally not about the core issue.

This comes as a surprise to many because they believe that the fight is a reflection of why they are so upset.

If they are fighting about the trash not being taken out without being told, when we explore deeper, the core issue is really about feeling taken for granted or not cared about and not about the trash.

 

Relationship Help From Expert Bree to Stop Fighting #1:

Be Honest!

Both men and women in a relationship filled with discord must get honest with themselves and one another.

What does this mean exactly?

It means that each partner must look within to discover what he or she is really angry about. This anger can come in all different forms but usually is hiding a deeper place of hurt and pain.

 

Relationship Help From Expert Bree to Stop Fighting #2:

Express Yourself!

Once a couple is able to discover why they are so angry, it is time to share it with each other. However, how the way it is shared can make or break the relationship’s ability to heal.

For example, if you go to your partner and say, “I am so angry at you because you always make me feel so unloved,” this will shut down the lines of communication.

On the other hand, if you share, “I feel hurt because it seems as if you do not love me anymore,” the doors to communication open up.

 

Relationship Help From Expert Bree to Stop Fighting #3:

Listen!

The old saying that there are three sides to every story is true!

This is so, for each person has their own perception of what has occurred. This perception stems from their previous experiences, which colors how they see life.

Therefore, it is vital to take the time and have the patience to really listen to one another’s feelings and perceptions. This does not mean you may necessarily agree with them but remaining open to hearing them is extremely important.

 

Relationship Help From Expert Bree to Stop Fighting #4:

Validate!

Once each partner shares what he or she is feeling it is important for the other to validate or confirm those feelings. This helps each partner feel heard and bridges the communication towards healing the relationship.

An example of this may sound like this, “Honey, lately I feel you don’t love me anymore.” Which is reflected back with this confirmation, “I hear that you are feeling that I do not love you anymore…is that right?”

 

Relationship Help From Expert Bree to Stop Fighting #5:

Clarification!

Once each partner is feeling heard there needs to be a clearing up of any misunderstandings. For example, is one partner is not feeling loved, it must be made certain that they are.

 

One of the main reasons I wrote the It’s That Simple! relationship help books for men and women was to help couples work through and heal their issues on their own. If you read and apply what you learn from the book you will see amazing transformations in your life and relationship!

Relationship Help For Men: How To Talk To A Woman

Relationship Help For Men

 

Bree Maresca-Kramer M.A. Relationship Expert

It may seem a bit redundant or cliché but one of the greatest problems men and women have in their relationship is with communication.

Why does this occur?

Simply because men and women’s brains are wired differently. The way each thinks, processes information, and communicated are different. So how does a couple overcome this obstacle and have a great relationship? Below are some tips to help:

 

Relationship Help For Men: How To Talk To A Woman Tip #1:

Start With Understanding!

The first step is to change the mindset of believing that your girlfriend or wife should understand you and talk to you in the way you talk with her.

Once a man gets that his woman is not ever going to communicate as he does, half the battle is already won. A man and woman are different, especially when it comes to how they communicate and that needs to be fully understood to overcome it.

 

Relationship Help For Men: How To Talk To A Woman Tip #2:

Don’t Fake It!

After a short time, most men will tune out of the conversation and pretend to be listening. Although, men have an incredible knack at being able to repeat the last thing that was just said even when they were not really listening, this always causes problems in a relationship.
This is so because the woman translates that into meaning her man does not care about what she has to say or her. Once this happen resentments build and effective communication breaks down completely.

 

Relationship Help For Men: How To Talk To A Woman Tip #3:

Tune In!

When a man focuses on the message his woman is trying to communicate, real communication builds. In order for a man to do this, he must listen to her words but more importantly what she wants him to hear.
For instance, if she says something like, “Honey, my jeans are not fitting and I am really upset about it” she wants him to understand that she is uncomfortable with her weight gain. Therefore, a great response would be something like, “Sweetheart, are you feeling badly about your body?”
This may seem a bit contrived but it works incredibly!

Relationship Help For Men: How To Talk To A Woman Tip #4:

Be Patient!

Women process their thoughts and feelings by talking it out, therefore, let her talk!

For a man he wants the bottom line and does not want to have to navigate through a lot of words to figure out what she is saying to him. However, when a man understands that she is talking to work through her thoughts and feelings, he will understand how important it is for him to give her space to talk things out.

The It’s That Simple! relationship help book just for men has a whole chapter in it just to teach men how to talk with their woman in a simple and easy to understand way. After you read and apply the information, I promise your communication with your woman will improve unbelievably!

Relationship Help With Coaching From Expert Bree Maresca-Kramer M.A.

 
 
 
 

Relationship Help Through Coaching

Relationship Coaching is a fantastic tool to use whether your relationship is on the rocks or needing some tweaking. When I work with a couple, I provide them with effective relationship tools to address what they are currently facing and what they may face in the future.
 
 
 

Relationship Help Through Coaching From Expert Bree #1:

Effective Communication!

By far the number one issue I work on with couples is how to talk with one another in such a way that each person is being heard and understood.

The majority of relationship problems stem from either a lack of communication or poor communication.
When a man and a woman learn the skills to speak to one another in the right way, a whole new world opens up for them and their relationship. Frustrations, resentments, and anger are transcended into understanding, compassion and a deeper love!

 

Relationship Help Through Coaching From Expert Bree #2:

Learning Your Love Language! 


Each of us feels and expresses the love we have in a certain way. Learning how you and your partner express your love is vital in having a thriving relationship.

Often, when one partner is expressing their love to their partner, who does not have the same love language, this causes many problems. This is so because a disconnect occurs between the giving and receiving of love between them.

 

Relationship Help Through Coaching From Expert Bree #3:

Reigniting The Passion!


Having a healthy and thriving sex life within your relationship is extremely important. When I work with couples, the majority of them have allowed the spark to die out. This in and of itself creates many unneeded problems for them.

Even if there is no sex life left within the relationship, the couples I work with learn how to rebuild their emotional and physical intimacy. If there are any physical or bio-chemical limitations those are also addressed. Once this is accomplished, the passion between them returns and so does their sexual wellness within the relationship!

 

Relationship Help Through Coaching From Expert Bree #4:

Team-Centered Approach!


This tool is absolutely vital in regards to any problem a couple may be facing. By the time a couple comes to me for help, they have allowed life stressors, family responsibilities, or career issues to divide and conquer them. I teach them how to come together and unite as a team in order to face down those things that tore them apart in the first place. This produces a much deeper bond and commitment and a happier, healthier relationship.

Relationship Help For Women: How To Talk To A Man

 
 
 
 

Relationship Help For Women

 

Bree Maresca-Kramer M.A. Relationship Expert

 

The most common mistake women make when trying to talk with their man is thinking that he can hear, listen, translate, and understand her like another woman could.

When I am working with a woman who is having relationship problems, one of the main issues we address is how to communicate with him.  The majority of women who have this issue in their relationship feel frustrated because they do not feel heard by their man.

However, when you know how to talk with your man, effective communication can and will happen!

 

Relationship Help For Women: How To Talk With A Man #1:

Shift Your Expectations!

Once a woman understands that she is talking with a man versus another woman, she has taken a giant first step in communicating with him.

Most men do not communicate in the same way women do. Therefore, the first step is to understand whom you are talking to and what you will get out of the exchange. Expecting him to fully listen, completely hear, and understand all of your feelings around what you are telling him is an unrealistic expectation.

On the other hand, desiring him to get what you are telling him is a realistic expectation when you know how to talk with him.

 

Relationship Help For Women: How To Talk With A Man #2:

Know What You Want To Say!

When communicating with a man it is very important to have a clear idea of what you are trying to communicate. Women typically talk through their feelings in a conversation as a way to get to the place of understanding what they are feeling. In other words, women will talk to process through their thoughts and feelings. However, when this is done while talking with a man, he ends up confused and frustrated. It is always better to start the conversation off with knowing what you want to communicate.

For example, if you want to talk with him about going on vacation, saying something like this does not work, “Honey, I am so overwhelmed lately with work and the kids, I am tired and feeling old. I think it would be good to get away. I am not sure we can afford it or where we could go, but I think it would be good for us. I know I could use some rest, but if the kids go I don’t know if that would happen, what do you think?”

However, this would work, “Honey, I want us to go away together.”

See the difference? If so, you are on your way to being able to effectively communicate with your man!

 

Relationship Help For Women: How To Talk With A Man #3:

Be Clear & Concise!

When you know what you want to communicate, the next step is delivering it in a concise manner. If you want your man to stop and pick up the dry cleaners you only say that and leave all of your other thoughts and feelings out of the request.

For example, saying something like this does not work, “Honey, I need my blue dress for work tomorrow because I have this important meeting with my boss who is driving me crazy, is there anyway you can pick it up for me after you pick up Suzy from dance class?”

However, saying it this way does work, “Honey can you please pick up my dry cleaning?”

By delivering a clear and concise message, he will have no problem understanding what you are saying. He will not have to navigate through your thoughts and feelings to try to decipher what you want.

 

Relationship Help For Women: How To Talk With A Man #4:

Never Ever Nag!

As soon as a man feels you are nagging him, he will check out of the conversation! I liken it to Charlie Brown’s teacher.  When she spoke to him all he heard was “wha-wha-wha” and in many respects that is what your man is hearing when he feels you are nagging him.

The important factor in this step is to know that what you consider to be nagging and what he considers to be nagging are two separate things.

You will mostly likely feel you are trying to express your feelings and perspective, while he will feel you are telling him he is not doing something right.

Would you like more effective communication skills to use? There is a whole chapter dedicated to this topic in the Its’ That Simple! relationship help book for women.
