Handling Disappointments in Relationships


Handling Disappointments in Relationships

Once the plan is agreed upon then there needs to be major commitment to the change process. Change does not occur overnight and will commonly regress if the change is not reinforced. My suggestion is that in your plan of change you set up consistent, frequent checkins on how the changes are going. During those checkins you will have the opportunity to validate what is going well, improve what is not working, and continue the communication process. What you will find as a secondary gain is that you and your partner will believe you can work through any issue. You will learn how each of you communicate and what it takes to reach a compromise. As a result of your hard work, you will experience much less disappointments in your relationship and find yourself with a deeper connection.
