Did you know that almost all of the perfectly happy couples you see in public areas have skeletons in their closets? Basically, when two people get together, they tend to ignore that the fact that they’re two separate people with differences for the start of their relationship – a period known quite aptly as the honeymoon phase. Over time, when the euphoria of the honeymoon phase starts to settle, they begin to notice their differences and it may seem like they’re drifting apart over them.
Most couples move towards accepting their partner’s slowly manifesting habits and mannerisms and work on finding a middle ground that is acceptable to both. However, if they dwell on the differences instead or just choose to ignore them, then they’ll only build up into a more complicated problem over time. The couple might not be able to decipher and work through these things on their own because of their relationship’s dynamics but to a third person, the problems and their solutions might present themselves with a greater degree of clarity – especially if that third person is a trained couple’s counselor.
If any of the above sounds relatable to you or you’re having some other kind of problem with your partner that you want to move on from, then seeking out couples counseling Boulder is a really good idea. If you want to be happy with your partner and just wish that you could understand them and that they could understand you better, then couples therapy is really going to help you sort things out and have a better life with them for years to come.
If you can’t stand your partner anymore, then it might already be too late to salvage your relationship anymore. Seek therapy before that point comes and you’ll be golden.
