What actions or behaviors are you willing to change to create a more loving relationship? 

Accept Responsibility for Yourself 

Taking responsibility for your own actions and inactions is crucial in understanding how they may have impacted your partner and relationship. Identify one or two behaviors you’re willing to change to mend your relationship. 

When was the last time you spent quality time with your partner? 

Spend Quality Time with Your Partner 

Investing positive and constructive time together is essential for a thriving relationship. Ensure that you’re setting aside moments for just the two of you, free from outside influences or distractions. 

What steps can you take to create a plan to repair communication with your partner? 

Open Communication with Your Partner 

Avoiding communication or seeking support from friends instead of your partner can hinder progress. Schedule time to address the issues in your relationship, showing your partner that you care and are committed to finding a solution together

How can you improve your listening skills? 

Listen Actively to Your Partner 

Listening involves more than hearing words—it requires empathy and engagement. Practice active listening by focusing on what your partner says, asking open-ended questions, and valuing their perspective. 

When do you need assistance in resolving issues within your relationship?  

Just as you would seek professional help for a car problem, don’t hesitate to seek guidance for your relationship. Marriage or couples therapy can provide a safe space to address fears and concerns. Remember, the success of therapy hinges on your commitment to change and the connection you build with your therapist.
