Relationships of any type can be challenging at the beginning, middle, or even the end. They can include intimate ones such as romantic, pre-marital, marital, and divorcing; family such as parent to child, sibling, and blended; professional such as employee to manager and coworkers; and other relationships that include friends, classmates, teammates and neighbors.
Getting help shows that you care enough to feel better about the relationship and how it’s going.
When relationships are not going well, they can be a sinkhole of loneliness and hopelessness as much as they cause you frustration, irritation, and anger. The problem is that you didn’t dream of your relationship as being troubling, and no matter how realistic you are, it still shocks you that it has become like this.
You might also feel like you are in a relationship living parallel or diverging lives without much emotion. The sadness is that you didn’t plan for this and it would be hard to settle long term for this kind of separate life. No matter your situation, you do have a choice.
