Often, we get trapped by this idea that our relationship should be perfect. That any issue signifies a troubled or unhealthy relationship. In reality, every relationship will encounter challenges. Each individual has their own thoughts, emotions, viewpoints. This means that we aren’t always going to see eye to eye with others, even with our partner. We might encounter difficult challenges, like jealousy, trust issues, financial strain, differing visions for our future together, which then cause us to pause and question the very foundation of our relationship.
“Lack of communication can drive a spike between two people wider than any physical distance.” –Mark W. Boyer
