Relationship Support for Couples in Kansas City, Missouri

Life Can Be Lonely

Undoubtedly we’ve all felt lonely at some point in our lives. It has been said that loneliness is an epidemic of our modern times. Loneliness is a ‘subjective’ feeling, and the causes aren’t the same for each individual. People experience loneliness for many different reasons, though the most common is a lack of an intimate connection with a partner. This longing for connection is almost universal, and can help encourage us to seek out healthy relationships.

Relationships provide a normal, natural way for you to combat loneliness. Your relationship provides a way for you and your partner to develop a lifelong support for one another. As you both grow together, feelings of isolation are driven away. Instead, you replace the emptiness of solitude with the warmth of sharing a connection with someone who wants to share your life.

You can Feel Isolated, Even in a Relationship

Being in a relationship isn’t a guarantee you won’t feel lonely. Indeed, Thriveworks couples counselors have seen cases in Kansas City and across Missouri where a relationship may actually make a person feel more isolated. Typically healthy relationships include conversations on mutual interests, shared ideas and the goals you and your partner have. However, if you find you and your partner only discuss the day-to-day maintenance issues of life, such as groceries, bills or other routine things, you may actually be ignoring a valuable part of the relationship and creating the perfect environment for isolation to grow.

Feeling separated from your partner can change the way you see your relationship. It can lead to a downward spiral of even greater relationship problems. When you feel lonely, you may under-value your current relationship, forgetting times in the past when you received support. You might think your partner isn’t interested in you and is less committed to the relationship. If not addresses, these feelings of isolation can prompt the end of the relationship.
