Marriage counseling is a process where couples come together for a consultation to establish healthy terms of a relationship. It’s often a difficult process as there is a need for couples to discover what really works for them and how they can best work together. In this blog post, we’ll talk about this difficult journey from a Singaporean perspective. To find the best marriage counseling in Singapore, you need o to follow the following tips;
1. Think about your needs
Are you working on a mature relationship? When we are in a new relationship, it can be hard to understand the needs of our partner. Do you have fun? Is this relationship good for your mental health? Does he or she have money problems? What about their family and friends? Are they ready to move out of the city center and start a life there? Remember that some things may be obvious to you at first, but not so much at later stages. It all depends on how your partner is growing as personality and views on life change in our relationships. Asking yourself these questions, no matter if you are single or married, will help you find out what kind of person he/she is.
2. Talk to people
When you are in a relationship, it can be difficult to express yourself. Singapore’s small size and diverse population can make it hard for couples to talk about problems because there is no one person they can confide in. One way to overcome this problem is to talk about it with your friends, family members, and co-workers. Ask for their advice and take time out of the day for them. If something urgent comes up, ask them if they would mind giving you a shoulder to lean on or help you out with a task until you are all right again.
3. Don’t meet just one person
We have a tendency to compare ourselves with others. If we do not find our partners attractive and attractive as people, we can feel like we are not good enough. We may envy someone else’s relationship (it could be an ex) and try to push the thought aside, but deep down this is what happens. Why would you want to settle for something that’s less than you? When I meet people in my life who know me well, they will tell me they only want to date me because my personality is compatible with theirs & that I’m worth it. These are the people who genuinely love me because they know how beautiful I am on the inside.
4. Find a way that works for you
Thoughts and feelings from one individual may not apply to another. So don’t feel like you have to do something just because someone else does it. If you want to work with a counselor, use them as a tool to help you better your relationship rather than the end-all-be-all solution. And if that doesn’t work, move on and try something different.
5. Be patient with your partner
It can be easy for couples in Singapore to stay in their comfort zone. They may enjoy the taste of familiar foods, watching shows they’ve seen countless times, or playing games they know will never change (video games). These habits can turn into unhealthy habits that you’ll have to work hard to change. For example, watching the same shows over and over again can make it difficult for the two of you to talk and challenge each other. You may think your partner would understand this, but they might not (especially if they’re not used to this). At times, these habits that we all love can be a source of emotional disconnection in a relationship. It is said that most of our emotional problems are caused by behavioral patterns that keep us stuck in old patterns, while these habits are just as damaging as any other issue.
