You and your partner set out to conquer the world together. But lately, you’re spending a lot more time battling each other than acting as a united front.
When you and your partner first got together you were inseparable. You were the type of couple all your friends wanted to be, and you had the strong partnership you’d hoped for. You spent your time building each other up and encouraging each other to chase your dreams. You wanted the success in your personal and professional lives to equal what you had found in your romantic life. At least, you thought you did…
When you look at your life today, it breaks your heart to see how different your relationship has become. Both you and your partner have reached the goals you set for yourselves, but you never expected the consequences of your busy life. And you certainly never expected the fallout to impact you romantically. On your most stressful days, you feel like you have to choose between doing the things that are going to move you forward or the things that are going to reconnect you to the person you love.
Well, we’re here to tell you, you’re not alone. The obligations you have to meet do not have to keep you from feeling the love you used to feel. You and your partner can find ways to communicate and show you appreciate each other despite the number of things you have to balance to keep your world spinning.
At Urban Wellness we’re sure about one thing
Couples counseling offers a safe space for you and your partner to explore the things in your relationship that may not be working well. It is a healthy and self-caring way to work on yourself and the ways you relate to others. Together, we can look at barriers that are keeping you and your partner from creating the change you are seeking and find the best ways to implement those changes. We can also help you manage the symptoms and behaviors that are creating distress in your relationship, whether it be communication issues, conflict management, money issues, or adjusting to life transitions.
Sometimes everything you have going on in your life can take over. You and your partner are pulled in so many different directions that at the end of the day you have nothing left to give the relationship. When this happens, you both get comfortable with the tiny bit of distance thinking you’ll reconnect later when your lives calm down. Unfortunately, the days when things slow down are few and far between and they never last long enough for you to rebuild what is slowly crumbling.
This doesn’t mean you and your partner can’t find a way to strengthen your bond, it just means you both have to find the skills to be intentional about your love and dedicate yourselves to helping it grow.
That’s where Urban Wellness comes in
