Don’t just look at your spouse as someone to tolerate. Sometimes you wonder why you’re still together, or if something is wrong with you, that is keeping you two together. Am I tolerating too much? Am I being held back by them? How does it feel in the moment? Torturous! I try to reason it through, thinking “I’ve allowed myself to be supportive of and vulnerable with this person, and they now seem to use my vulnerability against me.” But is this temporary feeling – as bad as it is – actually the price of a long-term relationship? Doesn’t a committed relationship deserve a little something extra from you?
Allow me to provide you with one or more strengths-based assessments. These will highlight the best of who you are and provide you with a positive focus that has become obscured.
Avoid conflict at all costs. Well, if you’re anything like me, conflict is not something to embrace easily. The tendency to avoid bringing up concerns because we think to ourselves, “it will just make things worse,” or “that’s just too small to mention,” is widespread. Allow me to suggest that it’s precisely the little things we need to address and prevent them from escalating. Please focus on the small things; the big things will take care of themselves. Sound familiar?
Don’t rely on your partner to change. That’s not a strong or empowered position. When you take the initiative, you also take control and start asserting power. Couples Counselling, Marriage Counseling, or Couple therapy are unique, as you are, and should be customized to fit your concerns, style, and where you’re at. The most straightforward, logical, and natural approach is to schedule an individual session for yourself or your significant other. Prepare yourself in advance.
Want to go even deeper? Once you feel more comfortable, a more thorough or advanced approach involves taking a validated and reliable strengths-focused psychological assessment. This way, you can more fluidly focus on your own and each other’s freshly highlighted strengths rather than on problems. Focus on your best!
