When love fades or is shaken................
A romantic relationship can be the source of both happiness, personal enrichment and growth. However, meeting our desire and need for intimacy can also represent one of our biggest challenges.
When we feel that our needs for comfort, safety and intimacy are not being met we can feel lonely, sad, angry, apathetic and frustrated. It becomes difficult to think clearly, we can act rashly and become trapped into inflexible and destructive patterns of interaction. This may start to make us doubt our relationship. We can experience negative and critical thoughts and feelings both about our partner - and ourselves.
If you recognize this, it may be wise to seek help to uncover and acknowledge the frustration and unmet attachment needs lying behind these problems. With a therapist's help it is possible to invite each other into a new kind of dialogue that can open for a new experience of your relationship focusing on understanding, appreciation, compassion and respect for both oneself and each other. Love can be rekindled and can grow!
