Relationship Difficulties

Everyone's relationships are different. But sometimes we face similar issues. Problems such as lack of trust, poor communication and failing to respect your partner are at the heart of many relationship problems, even when the cause of your arguments seems to be something simple like your finances or living arrangements. Identifying the problem and seeking relationship advice can be the keys to working through your difficulties and becoming stronger as a couple or as individuals.

Whatever you're going through in your relationship, it can be comforting to know that you're not alone.

Most people believe that if you are with the right partner you will never have conflict or  experience problems in a relationship. Relationships will have rocky times and even times of doubt about whether you should be in your relationship at all. Couples, when they enter a relationship, don't always become one person, each becoming the "better half" of the other. Instead, they remain individuals who merge their lives. This comes with its own problems and pains, because it's not always  easy  to share your life intimately with another person. All couples will face some minor and at least one major issue. Couples who sail through troubled waters work with effective communication and sense of partnership.

When to Seek Relationship Advice

Relationship Difficulties Advice by Doctor
A relationship is like a house. When a light bulb burns out you do not go and buy a new house, you fix the lightbulb.

You might need relationship advice whether you are married or not, living together or apart, gay or straight, younger or older. Sometimes trouble starts early, in other relationships it only appears after many years. The problems might be obvious or you might have no idea why you are arguing or drifting apart. The issue could be serious and life changing or apparently trivial. Any problem that is putting a strain on your relationship or affecting your individual wellbeing is worth addressing. If you feel unable to find a solution alone then it is time to seek relationship advice.

Couples counselling can enable better communication and build trust between you and your partner.

I don’t understand relationship, sometimes we are friends, sometimes we are more than friends and sometimes I’m just a stranger to you without communication

There is no relationship without respect .There is no love without Trust.

The biggest communication problem is that we do not listen to understand. We listen to reply
