How open is yours?
Online communication solutions for relationship breakthroughs
the excitement you felt when you were first getting to know each other?
The hopes and dreams you had for joining your lives together. The visions of a happy future together, hearing each other’s loving voices as you murmured good night and good morning every day, lighting up at the glimpse of your partner’s smiling face across the room, the warm comfort of each other’s scent as years turned into decades of closeness, the loving embrace and familiar touch strengthening your intimacy through good times and bad...
But now things have changed… This is not the way you ever wanted to feel
After years of working hard side by side on careers and family, now you’re feeling lonely and disconnected. You thought you were building a life together, and it’s scary to feel you’ve become strangers living separate lives in the same house.
You don’t know how to talk about important issues and different opinions. You dread every conversation.
And you’ve really tried. You want to do the work if it will help. You’ve wanted advice from friends, books, workshops, maybe even therapy. Perhaps you’ve learned some good stuff, but it didn’t stick and changes haven’t lasted.
In the pit of your stomach you’re scared - you don’t want to break up your family and end up alone.
You can rekindle your relationship
Change is possible - it's not too late
About Dr. Sarah
And The Couples Communication Institute
From the moment your relationship with your partner began you imagined joyfully building your life with your best friend, laughing over inside jokes at dinnertime before an evening of intimacy, and long happy days of just being together.
But what happens when the years go by and instead of getting closer you disconnect, disengage, and you feel helpless because you just don’t know how to rekindle your relationship?
I understand how that feels.
Nobody should have to feel stuck and scared, not knowing how to even communicate with each other. You want to know the path forward to the closeness and intimacy.
