Flourishing Relationships - Are you neglecting your relationship?

It's New Year and we have finally arrived at 2014. You have (I hope) survived Christmas and the family get- togethers where relationships are often tested to the max. The rush to buy presents, food, putting up decorations etc is over for another year - Phew! Even if you do not celebrate Christmas, it can be an exhausting and testing time.

Family Outing
How has your relationship coped? If you have a solid, loving relationship that is working well, probably just fine.
However, if your relationship has been struggling for a while, the Christmas holiday season may well have put you under some extra pressure.

Now we have started a new year, it is an ideal time to take a step back from everything else that is going on in your life and focus on your relationship with your partner or spouse. 

Stop putting it off. Face up to what is and what is not working in your relationship . Burying your head in the sand does not solve anything and only makes things worse.

So I suggest that you use the new year to work on your relationship. Face and resolve the issues that are causing your relationship to falter. 

Be reassured that it is OK to get some professional help. If you don't feel that you are getting the help that you need and are not making progress, go find someone else. But above all be open to change; to doing some things differently.

When you are in a partnership or marriage and things get a little sticky, it is important that both partners come to the table to resolve the issues. After all, you are in this together and each has a responsibility for making your relationship work.

Flourishing Relationships Retreats have been set up especially to help couples to get away for a short time and resolve the issues that are eroding their relationship.
