If you are just joining us in our blog this week, please check out Tamara and Teri's previous blogs. We are discussing charateristics of Dysfunctional Couples as defined by Recovering Couples Anonymous. See if you identify any of these characterics in your relationships: 10. We believe thar must enjoy the same things and have the same interests.
11. We believe that to be a good couples we must be socially acceptable.
12. We have forgotten how to play together.
13. It is safer to get upset about little issues than to express our true feelings about larger ones.
If you are really identifying with any of these issues in your relationships, it is important for you to discuss this with your partner. Perhaps it's time for a "tune-up" (See our previous blog about how your relationship is like a car!). Don't hesitate to call us to help. It's amazing what is happening here at Imagine Hope! Relationships are being restored everyday. It's so inspiring!
Thank you for reading and have a great day!
