Do you struggle to feel heard or understood by one another?
Does it feel like you're not quite "on the same page"?
Do you constantly feel pressure to maintain a relationship?
Do the pressures of family and work life feel like they're taking priority?
In relationships, there are often challenges that may be difficult to overcome. These challenges are often added to by the external pressures of work, family, friends, and financial circumstances. Relationships are a cornerstone of many aspects of our lives, and overtime we can forget to nurture them or may find we lack the skills required to enable them to flourish. It is also important to note that relationship difficulties are a part of every couple's lives, but often these can be overcome.
Prioritising your relationships is an important choice. It doesn't have to be an impossible challenge, or something that falls off the to-do list. There is a lot that can be done to identifying the challenges of a relationship, help couples to understand themselves as individuals, and their roles within the relationship. Depending on the situation and how you feel, you may benefit from therapy as a couple or as separate individuals, or both.
There are different therapies designed to support couples for instance the Gottman method amongst others. Congratulations in taking the first step at seeking help, don't be afraid to take the next.
