We all experience relationship issues on some level. It can be with your wife, boyfriend, father, friend, a colleague... whoever. It's completely normal for us to experience some difficulties in the relationships that have meaning in our lives.
The issues that sometimes exist in a relationship can become barriers to the both of you getting along and prevent you from enjoying the positive aspect of the relationship. The barriers can be easy or complex to understand, it just depends on how you interact with each other and how you feel. If they are becoming so big that you're feeling quite disconnected with the positive aspects, then maybe it's time to do something about that. But don't worry, it doesn't mean that the relationship must end!
A lot of the time, if you care about the relationship, the barriers can be explored and understood. Undertanding the issue is half of the work, the other half is then working on the issue together. Over time, they can become less existent. It might not be easy to do so, but ultimately, if you really care for the relationship, then it's going to be worth it.
If you would like to make the effort with someone that you care about, then get in touch with a counsellor and together you can work towards a happier you.
