Marrige and Couples Counseling in Exeter, New Hampshire
Healthy Relationships Aren’t Fairy Tales
As children, many of us have heard the story of Cinderella and Prince Charming. We’re familiar with the tale of love at first sight between the two while dancing at the ball. We know of the prince’s determined quest to find his one and only, a quest driven by his love for this mysterious girl who disappeared so quickly. This theme is seen many times in stories and romance movies.
Though Cinderella and Prince Charming eventually celebrate their ‘happily ever after,’ when we view modern relationships, many of us may wonder if true love only exists in stories. We know the fairy tales read to children, along with the stories often told in modern movies, can paint an unrealistic view of what love is. But this doesn’t mean you can’t have a healthy relationship that improves your life and the life of your partner.
Can You Make Your Own Happily Ever After?
A healthy relationship doesn’t mean you’re happy all the time. Some dissatisfaction with a relationship is normal from time to time. Even so, you know the relationship can be improved because you’ve seen in the past when you were happier. You can look back and remember when you spent more time with your partner, and enjoyed their company. A healthy relationship isn’t a perfect relationship, it’s simply two people willing to work and make things better.
Couples counselors and therapists in Exeter NH can help you learn how to address any dissatisfaction you may have so it doesn’t undo your relationship. We can show you how to review your feelings and help you identify what may be causing your distress. In the best cases, we can provide you with strategies that allow you to harness your unhappiness, and show you ways to use this unease to help motivate you to make the relationship better.
