You know what people’s biggest relationship barrier can be at times? Themselves.
We get selfish and stubborn. We need someone to bring us back to some sort of grounding. It has been taught in our principals for a long time; where religion, spirituality or whatever you practice is concerned.
In relationships it is not always easy, and sometimes one thing can drastically change it. Problems begin, communication breaks down, then fighting starts.
People view therapy as inability to deal with their problems on their own, but that is not it at all. We take care of our bodies by exercising and eating right, you can not expect your body to just fix itself. This is the same for our mind. Sometimes we need someone to help us see it in another perspective. This is why we read, and continue to learn. Therapy is a way for you to learn how to grow in your relationships. When we get too comfortable or routine, we can not see in the same manner that an outside person can. We can all use a little outside perspective at times. Growth is the best way to keep relationships healthy and strong.
