One short sentence that can swirl up a tornado of emotion in almost every one of us. How about you, hun? Are you feeling the warm and fuzzies? Maybe you’re feeling left out in the cold. Or is it something else entirely that you can’t quite pinpoint?
If you’re drowing in a sea of second-guessing your significant other, running through replays of crappy conversations and scenarios (real or imagined) in your head each night instead of getting your beauty sleep, comparing your limping love story to Mr & Mrs Facebook Fantastique…we’ve got news for you. Virtually NO ONE has it nailed!
Even the most seemingly-perfect pair of lovebirds can end up pecking each other’s heads. Worries, insecurities, jealousy, back-biting, behind the scenes or centre stage, it happens to us all at some point. So, we’d just like to say…
Welcome to the not-so-awesome, overcrowded...
'Relationship Worry Club'.
We’d like to say it’s nice to have you here, but we’d be lying.
So, how can we help you to make good your great escape from this club?
Well, we’re going to give you a little food for thought. For starters, here’s a couple of key theories worked out by some clever folks, all about co-existing with your chosen beau.
We fall in love and consciously (and subconsciously) expect our partner to right the wrongs of our childhood. White Knight, anyone?
Some of us want to recreate the relationship that our parents have/had, for better OR for worse, in some cases.
We’re addicted to being ‘in love’ and can’t (or won’t) move on from that place of perfect passion to ‘love’, which calls for compromise and a whole host of other emotions and expectations that are necessary for a long and loving union of yes, yes, yes!
Do any of these statements strike a chord?
We've found that the most common couples-related calamities are Behaviour, Communication and Feelings.
Our behavior plays a big role and can bash the bliss right out of our romance. Ask yourself, sweetheart, do either of you reinforce certain behaviours in order to feel better about yourselves? Do you have boundaries – a clear idea of what each other will and will not accept? Are you pinning past painful experiences on your current partner? Maybe you’re having a communication breakdown – in one ear and out the other, so to speak. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what's wrong when you're in the trenches.
So, just for you, we've created a cool
