Helpful Advice From Relationship Expert Bree
When two people come together and decide to be in relationship with one another, rarely are they thinking, “Boy this is going to be awful!” Rather, they are both excited, hopeful, and thinking, “This is amazing!”
So how do so many relationships start from a point of “This is amazing!” and end up in the place of “This is awful!” we need help?
Although each person and couple is unique, there are several common reasons this occurs.
- Poor or lack of effective communication skills
- Inability to develop or keep an emotional bond
- Unrealistic expectations of the other person
- Allowing the physical intimacy to fade
- Allowing resentments to build
- Lack of forgiveness
Each of these reasons are significant on their own, however, most couples end up experiencing more than just one. Little small irritants over time end up turning into big problems.
So how can a person get the right type of relationship help for their specific problems?
I recommend starting from an honest place of self-examination. Really look at the quality of one’s relationship to determine what type of help is needed. This can be a bit tricky as denial can crop in and cloud ones assessment. However, the best way to check the status of one’s relationship is to ask, “How happy or unhappy am I in this relationship?”
If a relationship is having mild to moderate problems then becoming self-educated using a relationship help book is a great first step to take. Often, when people are given the exact tools and information they will make the positive changes needed for their relationship.
If a couple is fighting more than not, feeling fed up and not sure how to make things better then bringing in the help of a relationship professional is recommended. I work with men, women, and couples around the country helping them heal and transform their relationship.
If there are addictions or abuse occurring then there absolutely needs to be a mental health processional brought in to help each person in the relationship.
The sad fact is that most relationships that fail could have been saved with the right type of help.
It is always better to try everything one can to save their relationship before throwing it away only to repeat the pattern with someone new.
