Why are relationships so hard?
As explained on the Therapy for Couples page:
Learning how to sustain intimacy with another person is one of the hardest challenges facing us as human beings. Many barriers keep us from having the closeness we might want, even in what others think are ‘good’ relationships.
Each of us has the capacity to cause our partner pain or joy. How we choose to act can wound our partner or help them grow to be more of themselves.
We spend so much of our lives relating to others, it seems crazy that learning how to develop and sustain positive relationships isn’t part of the school curriculum. Luckily the skills can be taught and learned at any age.
Learn to negotiate the rough places
If you come to psychotherapy as a couple you can understand why your relationship may feel difficult at times. You can learn how to negotiate the rough places without either of you becoming too hurt.
