Human beings are social beings. We exist in relation to our peers, our friends, our significant others, and our families. When tensions or difficulties arise within these dynamics, it can be deeply upsetting. When these difficulties are prolonged, they can have a significant impact on our mood and day-to-day life. It is often helpful to look more closely at our relationships and ourselves to gain more insight about the situation. This might include difficulties between romantic partners, between spouses, and or between parents and their children.
