What Makes a Successful Marriage?
Building a Relationship and having that Emotional and Mental Edge!
We all need someone to be there for us. To care about us. To understand us…….to get us. To live with this kind of attachment is wonderful, bringing us much joy. At the same time it also can challenge us to struggle with the deep calling of love—to accept one another and not demand that our partner be like us. By stretching our emotional muscles and giving one another space, we can be in touch with our own sense of self and our own integrity. It can also launch couples toward developing more common ground.
In this venture we are updating, remodeling, rebooting and shaping new dimensions in our destiny together. These dynamics are no strangers to a healthy marriage. It takes a great deal of determination and dedication to make love work on a daily basis. These endeavors can make love stronger and ever more prepared to face life’s urgencies.
Even though about 50% of marriages end in divorce, this kind of disruption can be circumvented when two people are willing to make changes that will meet one another’s needs. Coming to Couples Therapy can help most partners improve their relationship.
Malcolm Gladwell says it takes 10,000 hours to be an expert in one’s field. Going to Couples Therapy can reduce those hours a great deal.
How can therapy help?
It can be an opportunity to talk about the obstacles that get in the way of having a fulfilling relationship. A deeper sense of compassion can surface. The air can be cleared. In therapy we work to find that creative edge, so that couples can have a lasting and fulfilling marriage.
Change can happen. So much new awareness can be unearthed. Exceptional abilities can emerge. Healing and vibrant energies can naturally evolve. A richer meaning of the relationship can be felt. A more colorful life with a deeper sense of love, meaning and purpose can be experienced. A moving sense of gratitude for one another can come forth. That mental and emotional edge can be displayed!
