This is a story, from years ago. Two people met, fell in love, felt invincible and took the plunge, they got married. Like many others, they felt that no force could tear them apart. They were right. Or were they? True to their beliefs, they were two strong individuals, there was strength in their togetherness and richness in collective experience. Yet, time exhibited that they were just two of the myriad things that were part of the experience. The relationship dusted the nooks and crevices that they didn’t know existed. Of course, it also brought sunshine and warmth they were clueless of. Life together as a couple brought them face to face with the realities, a dangerous concoction of vulnerabilities and struggles.
So, what happened? Did they let go? No.
With the good fortune of professional guidance and counselling, they were nudged to re-think their relationship. They worked hard and learnt what went into making a resilient partnership. They re-built a stronger foundation for their future together.
This is not a story straight out of the books, it’s straight out of our lives. This is OUR story.We were one of the lucky few to have access to expert help when we needed it the most. Unfortunately, that’s not the case for millions of individuals, who are part of diverse relationships. May it be friends, couples, colleagues or any person involved in an emotional partnership, a very small percentage receive the insight into the complex demands of a relationship.
