It's All About Relationships

Relationships are hard sometimes. Who knew you could feel so disappointed by another person?

The love you desire seems pretty impossible at the moment. You had dreams for what your relationship would be like but instead feel lonely, overwhelmed and frustrated. No matter what you do, it seems like it is never enough.

It's Not Fair!

Then there are those dreaded conversations full of conflict but no resolution, even when you bulldoze your way into fixing it. When that doesn't work, you hide, avoiding problems just for a little protection from more pain. Stress festers and disconnect grows.

Can you hear the echo from the Grand Canyon? Yeah, that's the gap between the two of you.

None of this is matching up with what you thought it would be like. What you were taught was healthy - this isn't it. You just want to feel connected and to know you are important, appreciated and valued.

What would it be like if you could say you aren't happy in a way that you knew you would be heard because your relationship is a safe place to land, every time.

You just want to know how to repair things when mistakes happen and then return to intimacy. Deep down, you long for this to get better and for your relationship to be the shelter from the stress of life, not the cause.
