Not Happy in Your Relationship?
If you’re at a stage where you want to start prioritizing your relationship higher, you’re in luck. It’s never too late. At the same time, I don’t recommend you continue to dwell on the idea that something is wrong with you or your partner. That attitude isn’t likely to help you. Instead, may I suggest that you haven’t prioritized your relationship adequately lately, and now it’s time has come. If you aren’t happy, the only way to go is to improve, so there’s room for optimism. What’s likely to benefit you is not further rumination but skilling up and learning the language of love and emotions.
Communication is Key, not Problem-Solving
It’s easy to misplace your energy and chip away at relationship intimacy. Focus your attention on things you don’t like. When you realize it has become an issue, you may struggle to get your relationship back on track. Increasing intimacy with couples counseling or relationship counselling is easier than you think.
The Pathway to Intimacy
Imagine the power of couples counseling, making it a little easier to talk with each other, listen, and learn “what’s most important” for your partner. Follow the pathway to intimacy. Fix your relationship.
All Battles are Temporary
Life can sometimes feel like a struggle. Let me reassure you that all battles are temporary; we only need to take appropriate action. Seeking the answers to how you can increase your intimacy suggests a higher road than, say, fighting it out, making someone pay, or stonewalling.
Manage the Little Things
Assistance is available when you’re ready and want to develop new, healthy perspectives that see the benefits of addressing minor concerns. Those who manage the little things rarely need to fight it out. Another healthy perspective. “We are only given challenges that we can handle – that will ultimately – bring out our best.” Finally, spend a little time remembering the good times, and spend a little time with these FREE resources.
Become One with Your Partner
Intimate relationships are characterized by mutual trust, caring, and acceptance. And none of us can focus on our partner’s shortcomings and cultivate intimacy simultaneously. That’s crazy-making.
It’s not an effective strategy to force your partner to change to be more like you so you can trust them. In a sense, you must join and become one. It’s like a meditative philosophy. Leave your EGO at the door.
Fighting it out doesn’t bring intimacy. It only creates a headache. Start moving your relationship balance from conflict and disdain to love, intimacy, and respect.
Let me remind you of the obvious. Intimacy involves feelings of emotional closeness and connectedness with another person, not winning a battle. Intimacy includes the desire to share and respect each other’s innermost thoughts and feelings. Couples counseling can assist you in making this happen.
Can you make the first move?
If this is a struggle, perhaps I can help.
I have developed a twelve-session coaching program that delineates the pathway to intimacy. It is intended for individuals who’d like to improve their relationship skills. Expect to take two well-validated and highly-reliable psychological assessments. In some respects, life and relationships are as simple as stringing together a sequence of positive memories.
Find A Safe Place
We’ll spend all sessions on your story, plus highlighting your strengths. You’ll know precisely what to zero in on when interacting with others you’d like to get to know better. Jump in with this coaching program or secure two or three individual sessions first.
Communicating feelings and understanding emotions help you to cultivate depth in any relationship. Empathy leads a couple toward a mutually satisfying relationship but doesn’t ensure one. Finding solutions to issues when emotions are involved is vital. It moves you toward spending more time enjoying each other and less fighting. When you’re ready, it’s time to “skill-up,” be guided by your values, and put your strengths to the test. Feel clear, calm, and focused.
