I'm glad you are here. Your responses indicate that you feel unsettled and maybe even unsafe in your relationship. A person cannot thrive and feel peace when they are in an insecure relationship. Stress is surging through their system and they are vulnerable to mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, and addiction, and medical struggles such as high blood pressure, over or underweight and gastrointestinal distress. Whether this is your first relationship like this or a pattern, you deserve to have peace, love, and above all, emotional and physical safety.
I'm glad you are here! Your responses indicate that your relationship may be a bit tumultuous and not as satisfying as you would like it to be. You might be playing off each other in a way that hits "hot" buttons too often and leaves you being either in conflict or stand-offish or just feeling bad. You know it could be better, but you don't know where to start, or you have tried and not been successful. Trust me! Your relationship can definitely get to the next level! And once you get to the next level, you can move toward even the next level. Are you ready to comit to having an even more satisfying relationship?
Oh...you guys are good! You're already good but you struggle from time to time, knowing that you could do this better. You have already made efforts to grow your relationship and work through challenges and you have been successful. If you find yourselves saying, "Why does this keep happening?" then you are definitely ready for the next step. You WILL be the couple you dream of being when you commit to it!
Bravo! The secure couple has been together long enough to be out of the early, or "honeymoon" stage. They have had to navigate challenges and differences of opinion. They have taken time for each other, to learn about each other and what they can do to love one another best. Not only do they have each other's back, but they don't even question anything about each other. They are aimed in the same life direction as a couple and working together to build a great life together. I'm really glad you are here, because I know you already realize, there's a next level! It can get even better!
