Relationship Expert & Coach Bree Maresca-Kramer: Get Relationship Help When You Need It!
All relationships, even the healthiest ones, run into some difficult patches now and then. Those couples who do not have the proper relationship tools to get through complicated times are the ones who fall apart and do not make it. Most of the time, in these cases, the couple needed some relationship help and would have been able to stay together. The unfortunate fact is that so many men and women were not taught these tools while growing up and are left to figure it out for themselves. When I work with couples I often times have to start with the very basics such as with communication, feeling identification, boundaries, and intimacy issues. When a couple has the willingness to learn and apply the right tools miracles in their relationship happen!
A Problem That Will Not Go Away!
If a couple has a problem that continues to arise and is not able to come to a solution it is time to get help. If a couple does not take action, the repetitive issue usually snowballs into other concerns causing more damage in the relationship. Many times a couple will come to me for help with just one issue. As soon as it is addressed and healed they move on with their relationship stronger and wiser.
Too Much Silence!
When a couple stops talking it is a definite sign that they need help. Silence between partners is sometimes worse than fighting, as it can represent a defeated attitude toward the relationship. When one or both partners give up it is extremely difficult to make the relationship work. There must be willingness to do what it takes to make it work and talking it out is one of those things.
Not Enough Intimacy!
When a couple loses their emotional and physical bond that is a huge red flag and help must be attained immediately! A healthy relationship needs both a strong emotional and physical bond. Many couples allow life stressors to get in the way and block these two vital pieces of their relationship. When a couple sees one or both of these parts of their relationship not working it is definitely time to get help.
Fighting is a normal part of a relationship, as it represents differences coming to the surface of two individuals. When a couple can argue and work through it respecting one another, their relationship has a high survival rate. On the other hand, while a couple is fighting if they use blame, shame, or hurtful words or accusations they are causing great damage, which could ultimately end their relationship. There is a way to fight fairly that I teach my clients that changes everything!
Poor Communication Styles!
This has to be by far one of the most important facets in a healthy relationship. So many couples have no idea how to effectively communicate with one another. A man must learn how to talk with his woman and a woman must learn how to talk with her man in order for their relationship to work.
That is why there is a whole chapter dedicated to teaching men and women how to talk with one another in the It’s That Simple! relationship help book for men and It’s That Simple! relationship help book for women.
When a couple runs into times where things could be better that is the time to get help rather than waiting for things to magically get better on their own. The fact is that relationship problems do not go away on their own. It takes information, tools, and guidance to solve the problems and have a healthy, happy, and thriving relationship!
