The old relationship dream has faded away?
You seem to spend more and more time arguing?
You spend less and less time with your partner?
The sex life has died or is less satisfactory?
The person you fell in love with isn't the same person anymore?
It can be so upsetting and confusing when what seemed to be a great relationship starts to change. It can be as though the person we are with is like a different person.
Finding a way through these challenges can seem overwhelming or even impossible but when you have acquired new insights and skills you will be able to create a much stronger and mature relationship.
Whether you are starting a relationship wanting to make sure that it flourishes, or rebuilding a relationship currently in trouble the first obstacle is often not knowing where to start.
The first step is to understand yourself better. Exploring how you think about and perceive your partner goes a long way to helping you understand your contribution to the relationship. Secondly, understanding how the other person thinks and feels will enable you to navigate troubled water much more effectively and generate a deeper level of connection and love.
The third step is to learn to communicate better. Something we're never taught in school, but that is vital for great relationships. Do you know how to really listen? Can you say what you need to say?
Finally, you also need to learn how to deal with conflict and learn how to build a closer relationship emotionally, spiritually and physically.
We explore all of these areas in a lot more detail in The Relationship Maze.
