Since we are so capable in so many areas of our lives, it's time to get past our struggles by learning the tools and steps to a great relationship!
THE LOOK AND FEEL OF RELATIONSHIP STRUGGLES:
Discouragement and loneliness:
Why am I the only single person left?
Why can everyone else find the right person but I seem to be the only one left in the singles club?
You start to feel that something is wrong with you and that you just can't seem to find happiness.
Inability to take the relationships to the next level:
We have been dating for a while, I really want to get more serious.
You feel like you are not good enough or you are doing something wrong.
You try really hard to please the other afraid that you may lose him or her and feel like a failure because nothing seems to work. You start to feel really bad about yourself and get really upset with your partner.
I found the right person, why can't we get along better?
“This is my person, why is it so hard to get along sometimes?”
You have both decided to spend the rest of your life together, but get into some serious arguments, nag each other, ghost each other, or have a hard time communicating with each other.
This leaves you disappointed, unsure and insecure about your future together.
