What Relationships AreSupport Us
People are social creatures. Whether you think of yourself as gregarious or shy, a lover of solitude or a team player, what you’re like in relation to others is often a central part of life.
Relationships matter to us. We enjoy them, we cry over them and we’re enormously curious about how to get our relationships to be the way we want them.
How well your relationships work can have a big impact on how satisfied you feel with life. Stimulating, resilient, satisfying relationships with partners, friends and family rank high on many people’s wish list for a happy life.
Do you ever wonder how you come across to other people, or what role you want other people to play in your life? You might want to feel connected to others, or well supported by those around you, or capable of letting the people you love know that you care.
You might want to develop the ability to negotiate changes in your relationships or to ask directly for what you want. What ever your relationship goals are, the way you think about your relationships, the skills and attitudes you bring to them and the time and effort you are prepared to put in to them can make all the difference.
The Relationships section of this web site explores some of the issues and opportunities that relationships might present in your life.
