Ok, so we can't always be as happy and smug as the couple to our right!
However, many relationships struggle and fail due to issues that, with the right assistance, can be salvaged and turned around.
It can be difficult to know where to turn when your relationship goes through a rough patch. It can be all too easy to get into unhelpful cycles of behaviour that result in one or both of you feeling frustrated, angry, insecure and unfulfilled in your relationship. Perhaps you can see the destructive patterns of behaviour but feel powerless to make any changes.
If you or your partner is suffering from poor self esteem, high stress levels and not coping with the pressures of life, this can take it's toll on both of you. When we aren't feeling good about ourselves we can lack tolerance towards our partner which can result in irritations, anger or just simply closing up and being unwilling to communicate.
Causes of problems in relationships
• Feelings of low self-esteem, low confidence and inadequacy
• Feelings of hurt or fear of being hurt
• Feelings of guilt
• Feelings of jealousy, possessiveness and a lack of trust
• Feelings of unworthiness or not being good enough
• Fear of commitment, being rejected and feelings of rejection
• Feelings of insecurity and vulnerability
• Feelings of betrayal or fear of being betrayed
• Difficulty cutting emotional ties with previous partners
• Sexual problems for men or women
Problems with Jealousy
Many relationships have suffered or ended due to the negative thoughts caused by jealous feelings. Jealousy can manifest itself as anxiety over an anticipated loss of love or an insecurity of not matching up to others. Jealousy often consists of a combination of emotions such as insecurity, resentment, inadequacy and helplessness.
At the very heart of jealousy is a lack of self worth or self esteem by the sufferer. Jealous feelings may even arise unpromted, ie, not in response to the actions of their partner (or other people). However, when someone feels insecure within themselves, it can be easy to compare themself unfavourably with other people. No one can make another person feel jealous - it has to come from within and if we have poor self esteem, it can very easy for those insecure buttons to get pushed.
There are a number of reasons why people in relationships may bottle up their feelings - leading to issues in their relationship. People may feel silly or exposed talking about their innermost feelings and may fear rejection or ridicule from their partner. It could also be that there is resentment in the relationship and in order to try to maintain control and power, people may put up boundaries around themselves and not let their partners 'in'.
Self esteem, again, is usually always an issue here. People with self esteem problems often don't feel worthy of airing how they feel. They may worry how their partner will perceive them or judge them after opening up. When people have poor self esteem, they are can be excellent listeners for other people, but have low expectations about how much they can ask of other people's time and attention.
The Thrive Programme - much more than just couples counselling or marriage guidance
If you have relationship problems, I can offer you an entirely different and highly effective programme to help you, your partner, or indeed both of you to resolve the issues that blight your relationship. The feedback I often hear from people who have undergone traditional marriage guidance or couples counselling sessions is that there can be a lot of talking about the issues in their relationship....but nothing really changes at the end of it. The Thrive Programme offers a completely new and refreshing approach.
