Healthy relationships are often the key to happiness, whether it be with a partner, family member, or friend. Common attitudes, values, and actions allow healthy relationships to flourish. Even when both partners are in love with each other, a breakdown in communication may occur. Issues such as, affection, sex, emotionally-focused conversation, sharing, closeness, recreation and fun, attachment to friends or family, or have differing views on money, raising the children, etc. can all lead to a breakdown and miscommunication in a relationship. Failure to understand, respect or adjust to each other's needs and feelings, and react appropriately, can be a source of hurt, disappointment, and anger, which in turn may initiate an unhealthy pattern of reciprocal frustration. Therapy will help focus on the positive things in a relationship, and learning how and when to compromise.
