Does your cup runneth over with relationship issues?

Life would be empty without relationships. However, relationships are frequently beset by issues. If you are going through some relationship issues of your own, take courage in the thought that more often than not, steps can be taken to address these.

Predictably, the most common relationship issues occur among people who are close to one another. People who work together and people who belong to the same family circle (couples, siblings, in-laws, parents and children) commonly experience problems at one time or another.

Relationship Issues – When you are Half of a Couple

Even couples who are madly in love have their share of relationship issues. When couples settle into a realistic, day-to-day routine and face mundane responsibilities, the long, romantic and totally engrossing conversations may cease. This is when both men and women begin to feel that they are not being listened to. If this situation feels familiar, then you do have a relationship issue, and it is not at all a rare one.

Jealousy is another relationship issue that confronts many couples. If you have always been the jealous type, then maybe you need to sift through your feelings and figure out why they keep on surfacing. Trust issues can be among the most unsettling among couples. Regardless of whether the green eyed monster has you or your loved one in its clutches, it is an issue that needs to be resolved if you want a harmonious and long-lasting relationship.

Infidelity is another serious relationship issue, and it is unfortunately one that can seriously threaten the survival and the very fabric of a relationship. It is one of those obstacles that are best addressed with the help of a skilled counselor.

There are other relationship issues that couples need to take care of. Divergent ideas about handling of money, a lack of willingness to be emotionally intimate, indifference to the other person’s sensibilities – all these can become heavy burdens in a relationship.

Finding Help

Relationship issues are basically of a sensitive nature, and although you may find some relief in talking to friends and relatives, confiding in them could result in even more relationship issues. You can be misinterpreted, people could get tired of hearing you complain, and some confidante may unwittingly divulge statements meant to be private.
