Relationships can promote personal growth, but at the same time be difficult to meander. Sometimes we look to others to heal our wounds, or make the pain of our life go away. Intimacy can work for a while, but in the end, we are still left with ourselves. Our pain will inevitably boil over when our buttons are pushed or we seem to get stuck in the same argument.
This is one reason that individual counseling may be needed to work through individual issues in conjunction with counseling as a couple. While this may seem lengthy and daunting, it will be worth sifting through what is really going on with you as an individual and how it impacts, not only the relationship with the one you love, but other relationships as well.
Get started. You’re both worth it.
