Whether you’re married, engaged, or just starting out, it can be tough to give and get enough with busy lives, hectic schedules, and the difficulties of a relationship. You may find that you don’t trust the person, even if they’ve given you no reason to worry. You and your spouse may fight about finances, or you and your fiancé want to strengthen the relationship before the big day. Whatever your reasons, couples counseling in Minneapolis can be highly beneficial and may help you both understand each other and yourselves.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been married for a year or ten (or not even to that point of marriage), the conflict will happen, and it’s essential that you both know how to deal with it. Yelling, screaming, silent treatments, and other “tools” aren’t the most effective and can do serious damage. Instead, you’ll learn how to talk about your feelings, why you feel them, and what can be done to resolve the issue.
Many people find that they try and talk about issues between themselves, only to have the other person resent or be mad at them. Couples counseling in Minneapolis gives you both a chance to say what you want without fear of repercussions.
Assertive Not Offensive
Many times, men and women want to assert themselves and tell someone that they’re mad or upset, but come off as rude or mean. You’ll learn how to communicate better and talk in normal tones. In some cases, that can mean calling a truce and not speaking until you’ve both calmed down (which is different than the silent treatment).
