Help with Relationships
Whether we like it or not, we humans are wired for connection. And while each of us may tilt towards either end of the introversion/extroversion spectrum, relationships impact everyone’s health and happiness. Yet, we are rarely taught (nor are we witness to) healthy ways of relating to others. We aren’t shown how to relate well to ourselves either. It is no wonder that relationships can be challenging.
We seem normal only to those who don’t know us very well. In a wiser, more self-aware society than our own, a standard question on any early dinner date would be: “And how are you crazy?” - Alain de Botton
One thing I have observed in my work (and life) is that one’s relationship with one’s self, and all the accompanying beliefs and judgements, will show up in relationships to others. If you are struggling with patterns and dynamics in relationships that no longer serve you, therapy can help you shift them and find a way forward.
