You’ve said to yourself, “My relationship needs help!”
And yet, there you are, still arguing. Still disconnected. Still not able to talk about it.
Maybe you’re even beginning to think about whether you should divorce or break up. You want to fix your relationship, but every time you try to talk about it, you argue. Or, maybe you’re afraid to tell him or her that you have been feeling unhappy.
It is totally normal for couples to struggle.
It’s true. All couples can feel disconnected sometimes. All couples get stuck in repetitive arguments that we Emotionally Focused Couple Therapists call the negative cycle. All couples go through times where they’re not as sexually connected as they want to be. When couples fight, it is not uncommon for one or both partners to worry about whether their relationship is going to make it.
If this is you, take heart. You’re not alone. Relationships are hard work.
All relationships have ruptures. Good ones know how to repair.
Did you know that research has shown that couples wait an average of six (6!!!) years after having problems to seek couples therapy?
What gives? Why do we wait when we know we need help? Why do we start to think about divorcing or breaking up as a possible solution and not couples counseling?
