“When we love our partner well, we offer a blueprint for a loving relationship to our children and their partners. Better relationships between love partners are not just a personal preference, they are a social good. Better love relationships mean better families. And better, more loving families mean better, more responsive communities.” Sue Johnson⁣

Paying attention to your love relationship with your partner has the potential to change society. Never under estimate the power your own love relationships have upon the community around you. When we feel secure in our intimate relationship we are able to go out with confidence to love others deeper. ⁣

If you are feeling like it is time to identify negative patterns and find ways to better connect in your intimate relationship you might want to consider couples counseling. We often end up demanding rather than requesting when we are in need of connection and it often leads to power struggles rather than embraces. From your viewpoint is your partner accessible to you? Let’s work together to make your intimate relationship more supportive, loving, and stronger. ⁣
