Raleigh, NC Couples Counseling – Relationship, Marriage, Spouse Therapy

If you’re stuck in a relationship that doesn’t fulfill you, but you don’t want to give up, it’s normal to feel frustrated, sad, confused, and resentful. The good news is that you don’t have to stay in this cycle forever. Read these five tips to help you recharge your relationship and then contact Thriveworks Raleigh Couples Counseling for personalized help with your marriage or relationships.

1. Communicate your way out of a rut

One of the most common reasons couples stop feeling connected is because they’ve stopped talking to each other. They no longer share the details of their day, they don’t talk about their future together, and they don’t communicate their concerns about their relationship. Sit down with your partner, talk to them about how you feel, and be open to them doing the same.

2. Remember that it’s all in the action

Communication is an important first step but it’s not enough on its own. You must back up your words with actions. Depending on the specific issues in your relationship, there are a number of actions you could take. It may be as simple as helping with laundry or as complicated as ending a complex relationship in your life that your partner is uncomfortable with. Whatever the situation is, it’s important to take action when necessary.

3. Don’t expect magical overnight results

A quick fix would be nice but it’s not realistic. Let go of the idea that you must fix everything right now. Set reasonable expectations that include room for both growth and steps back. Building and maintaining a healthy relationship is a lifelong process.

4. Stay on top of your issues

It’s wonderful feeling to go through a rough patch and come out the other side. However, remember that if you don’t continue to do the things that got you through your troubling time, you’ll end up in another rough patch.

5. Don’t hyperfocus on what isn’t working

It’s tempting to focus on all the things that aren’t working. While it is important to discuss those issues don’t forget to remember why you’re together in the first place. Share your gratitude with your partner and let them know what they’re doing right.

All relationships are complicated and all of them go through their ups and downs. When you need help, reach out to a Thriveworks Raleigh, NC Couples Counselor and let our experienced providers give you the guidance you need to get through this troubling time.
