A good relationship provides enormous opportunity for enriching our lives. At the same time, every relationship requires work and will bring challenges that must be managed.
Simply, everyday stresses can strain a relationship, and major sources of stress may threaten the stability of the relationship. As long as each person is willing to address the issue at hand and participate in developing a solution, most relationship problems are manageable, but when challenges are left unaddressed, tension mounts, poor habits develop, and the health and longevity of the relationship are in jeopardy.
Our sense of identity and self-worth rests on the strength of our relationships and often we despair when they fail. Our ways of relating are learned at a young age in the family in which we grew up and we can become stuck in unhealthy and unhelpful habits that restrict our lives. Under pressure we often revert to familiar patterns. The family scapegoat may find themselves quick to accept blame when the pressure builds up at work. The assistant, who was bullied as a child, may find themselves drawn to inviting criticism from an overbearing boss.
