Ways Couples Can Fix their Relationship Issues: Shivani Sadhoo

Published on March 9, 2022


Relationships might often seem like a difficult landscape to navigate at times. Romantic relationship problems occur for several reasons but generally, they result in one or both partners feeling emotionally disassociated in their relationship, says Shivani Sadhoo.


What creates relationship troubles?


When negative patterns of interaction creep in, such as feelings of being misunderstood or not cared for, couples feel moments of disconnection or feeling far away from one another even when they are physically very close. When these circumstances of emotional disconnection repeat over time, couples generally feel that they cannot rely on each other. They end up considering their other half as a trustworthy source of safety, support, and comfort.


The problem of giving and receiving emotional help normally ends up interfering with the romantic relationship and intimate bond. After a while, certain partners will feel more like roommates or siblings than being a couple. If the pain caused by the emotional distance is too huge or unbearable, some people might start living parallel lives, together with but disassociated romantically. This could bring a sense of bitterness and distance within the relationship.
