Enhancing Relationships with the Right Support and Information
You never thought of yourself as a cheating partner. At the time it seemed so natural, so right. Now your partner looks at you like you just slithered out from under a rock. You’ve offered abject apologies. You’ve begged for forgiveness. What are you supposed to do? Nothing seems to be enough. You want to feel that the relationship is all fixed up, but nothing you do or say is enough right now.
Before you ask ‘can an abusive relationship get better?’, the answer is yes. When both partners are willing to put in some effort and to take responsibility for their own actions. However, this requires upgrading your skill set and your ability to communicate.
Types of Abuse
Common Types of Abuse
Physical and sexual abuse are the most common forms of domestic/family violence. However, there are other forms of abuse regularly used which can lead to power and control by an abuser. It can become a lifestyle that the abused person gets used to and they may not realise the effect it has on them and their children.
Many couples opt to enter relationship counselling or couples therapy when they feel like their relationship is going through a rocky patch and they don’t know how to resolve their issues. If you are considering relationship counselling or seeking expert relationship advice, you may want to start before your relationship gets to that rocky patch to avoid future heartache. Deal with issues that are starting to become a problem to ensure these issues don’t escalate out of control.
