Why Work on My Relationship?
Relationships can be filled with loneliness, pain, conflict and betrayal. You might feel trapped and have little hope anything will ever change. We believe when people are given the proper tools they can change, and relationships can go from barely surviving to thriving. Before you pack your bags consider these 4 reasons to stay, and remember change is always possible.
1. All relationships have problems.
Even the best marriages have perpetual, unsolvable problems. In fact, 69% of problems in all relationships are unsolvable, based on differences in personality and core values. Unless you plan on being alone your next relationship will still have problems.
2. Health benefits of good relationships.
You get the same health benefits being in a healthy marriage as you do from diet and exercise. People in good relationships live longer, are healthier, have stronger immune systems, and even become wealthier.
