Marriage Counseling: Solutions For A More Fulfilling Life

0
Families are only as healthy as the couple. So how important is
working on having a stable marriage to lead your family? It is very
important. Many of you have not had examples of what a healthy family
looks like. Maybe you grew up in a single parent home, or had an absentee
parent, emotionally unavailable parent, or there could have been addiction
and abuse present.
We carry our past experiences with us, until we
learn to overcome the past messages and reshape our faulty thinking
patterns, beliefs, expectations, the way that we speak, and how we
approach relationships through our life skills. We can tear down destructive root
systems built upon poor life experiences and establish healthy relationship
skills, communication, conflict resolution, and coping skills, to have
successful relationships.
Children are only as healthy as their family, and a
family is only as healthy as the couple, and couples are only as healthy
as each individual. The way that you as an individual have developed your
patterns of thought, expectations, life, and relationship skills,
affect the overall health of your marriage. You need healthy self-image, a
sense of self esteem that agrees with how God sees you, or your marriage
relationship is affected.
For example, if your spouse has a faulty identity
and is insecure and doesn’t like them self then compliments,
encouragement, and even love can bounce right off the stronghold wall.
Another possibility is that they may operate in distrust, jealousy, or control.
If you have a spouse who won’t talk about difficult issues in the
relationship because their
coping skill is avoidance, how can you communicate with them? You cannot do
healthy conflict resolution without communication. Communication and
conflict resolution skills are required to maintain a happy and healthy
relationship.
