The decision to seek marriage counseling or couples’ counseling is a hard one. Sometimes the other person isn’t willing to join you in the counseling session, and you are working on your relationship alone. There are ways to make life better and change the status quo of your relationships, whether both attend counseling or not. Let’s start with what you know about healthy relationships.
What’s Your Healthy Relationship IQ? True or False:
1) If someone loves me, they should just know what I want.
2) It’s OK to ask for what I would like from others, knowing they have the right to say no.
3) I give myself what I need instead of waiting for someone else to do it.
4) If two people love each other, they should always want to be together.
5) There’s no such thing as a healthy fight.
(2,3 are TRUE; 1, 4 and 5 are FALSE)
Happy relationships, not surprisingly, are directly linked to the amount of positive self-esteem each individual has. People who are afraid to be alone are less likely to have happy marriages, and people who avoid conflict and expect others to “just know” what they need are more frustrated in relationships.
