Are you having difficulty dealing with relationship issues?
How is your relationship life? I'm asking about your connections with friends, family, romantic partners and mates* ... or, the lack thereof.
To fully love and be loved are two of the deepest yearnings we have. So why are they so difficult to satisfy? Why doesn't love always flow back and forth easily and naturally? The short answer is that we are wired to avoid pain or adapt to painful situations in the most self-protective way possible. The good news is that we are also wired to connect. Sometimes our most valued relationships get caught in the crossfire of these two fundamental instincts.
Here are some examples of being caught in the crossfire. Can you relate to any of them?
If you relate to any of these issues, you are not alone. Loving, supportive relationships require some qualities and skills that we might not have acquired out of the gate. The good news is that they can be learned and cultivated. Some of these include emotional intelligence, communication skills, a sense of inner security and self worth, and self-awareness and understanding.
