Creating More Love & Peace resolving conflicts and getting your needs met

Conflict in every relationship is inevitable, but unresolved pain is optional and is primarily caused by a coupleís lack of skill to resolve conflicts that arise. When couples experience failure in resolving issues or in getting their mutual needs met they tend to go to blame becoming more avoidant of their partner and the problems, or they may become more aggressive. If this doesnít work it causes even less closeness, and things only get worse as resentment builds up. Eventually, they feel as if they are walking on eggshells and may even begin feeling victimized by their partners. At this stage, they have now come to believe their partner really doesnít care.

However, it can more so be a coupleís lack of skill to resolve conflict on an ongoing basis and get their mutual needs met that have been the real problem all along. If a couple once loved each other then where did the love go? What caused the love to diminish? What caused the hurt to accumulate?

People donít regularly wake up with the planned intention to make their partnerís life miserable, even if it may seem like that when weíre on the receiving end of a disagreeable or dismissive attitude. Learning the right skills to resolve conflict can go a long way to heal pain and create a meaningful, more enjoyable relationship where our needs are met and friendship is enhanced. Call us at 403-220-1101 or email to find out more.
