Please Think Before You Speak

Couples Therapy Near Me

Couples Therapy Near Me and where to turn for help. Every couple can use help from time to time. You may think everything is fine. If it is then great. There is no need to go hunting for problems if there are none. I bet however there are areas in your relationship that are harder to navigate then others. Maybe these go unspoken or we skirt around them and avoid talking. This leads to anger, resentment and conflict.

Communication and effective listening is a huge part of a healthy relationship. If we are unwilling to talk about the tougher issues then what does that say about the health of our relationship? We are conditioned at a young age to not hurt others feelings. We are taught to not talk about the elephant in the room. Why is it that we can be so intimate with our partner yet there are items or topics that are off limits?

Talk About The Realness

I say do not settle for anything less than authentic. Don’t go quiet because your afraid that you may upset your partner. I love the acronym THINK. Ask yourself before you bring up a topic with your partner the following:

  • T- Is what I am going to say Thoughtful?
  • H- Is it Helpful?
  • I- Inspiring?
  • N- Is it necessary?
  • K- Will it be kind?

After running through this list I bet you would not have much to say. You may think what you have to say is necessary but what is your motive for saying it? Is it to get your way? To be heard and validated because you truly believe your way is the only way?

Seek Help

Relationships can be hard work if your unable to hold the space for one another. By that I mean, be present to really listen when your partner just needs someone to talk to. Not advice giving or judgement but someone to hold the space so they can do their own work and process their feelings about a certain area of their life.

So often when others tell us their problems we instantly personalize it and think we are part of the problem. No you are not even a part of the conversation. Therapy allows each to process their feelings, viewpoints and areas they struggle with in a neutral place that holds the space. Both individual and couples counseling are beneficial for growth and healing. Call today and lets start the journey.
