How can Breakthrough Retreats help me with Relationships?
Do you ever stop to think that some of the most important things in life are not taught in school? Nobody teaches us, for example, about relationships: how to choose a partner, how to stay together despite differences, and how to know when it is really right to separate. For most people, it seems, learning about relationships is a matter of trial-and-error, often with a lot of pain and heartache mixed in.
Many people who are involved in relationships such as a marriage or other partnerships experience conflict. If conflict is dealt with appropriately, it can strengthen the relationship. Otherwise it can have a negative impact leading to frequent arguments, uncomfortable silences, and growing further apart. Having a good understanding of yourself and your partner, knowing how to communicate and express thoughts and feelings effectively are all critical for a healthy relationship.
Love alone is not enough to sustain a healthy relationship. We also need to learn the skills or have the ‘tools’ to maintain and strengthen the relationship. Healthy relationships are important for personal happiness as well as physical and mental wellbeing.
We are continually in a relationship — with ourselves, our family, significant partner, the culture, the world and the cosmos. Identifying destructive, cyclical patterns of relating is the key to changing the dysfunctional thought patterns and behavior that make relationships difficult to sustain. When relationships are failing — Breakthrough Retreats can be extremely useful in healing divisions between people.
Breakthrough Retreats can help repair the damage caused by old ways of thinking, feeling and behaving, while learning and engaging in new and healthier communication and coping skills.
