In life, our relationships are the source of almost everything that matters. Good relationships bring us happiness, fulfillment, opportunities, comfort, and support. Our relationships keep us grounded during hard times. They enable us to thrive in our careers and our personal lives. They help us grow into our own potential.
So why aren’t we ever formally taught relationships skills?
Our ability to build strong, nurturing relationships is the key to our success and happiness…and yet, we’re often left guessing how to foster intimacy, partnership and community through relationships.
Why Relationships Struggle
Many people take their relationships for granted. Whether they’re interacting with a boass, a coworker, a friend, a family member or a significant other…they get comfortable with the relationship as it currently is. They “go throught the motions” without taking time to check in. They fail to actively work at deepening their connections with the other person. The result is often miscommunication, distance, and hurt feelings. The relationship may begin to feel stagnant, unfulfilling or difficult. And when these problems emerge, it can feel like there’s no way to move forward. That’s where relationship-building skills — that anyone can learn — come into play.
