Staying committed to a spouse or partner for many years often isn’t easy. Couples in long term, committed relationships must work hard to maintain good communication skills, self-control, patience, conscious empathy for each other, and most of all, kindness.
Communication is a skill that is easy to neglect, particularly between committed partners. There must be a mutual exploration of consciousness to hold on to the partnership. Marriage therapy in Jacksonville, FL and Tallahassee, FL is about helping spouses/partners tune into their own important feelings and needs. And communicating those feelings and needs to their spouse/partner in ways that invite positive responses.
One of the most important aspects of couples counseling in Orlando, FL and Gainesville, FL is learning to “flex” the communication muscle. Stating how we feel in clear terms is the basis for conflict resolution. Communication opens the gates to conflict resolution strategies that allows spouses/partners to work towards common goals.
