Apathy Is The Enemy In Any Relationship: Why We Went To Couples Counseling When Things Were Good

Feb 06, 2023

Apathy is the enemy of relationships.

When people start to feel apathetic about their relationship, it can lead to boredom and a lack of connection. Apathy can result in feeling you are living with a roommate rather than a partner. In order to prevent apathy in your personal or professional relationships, it's essential to take responsibility for making the relationship great and to adopt a mindset that encourages non-apathy.

Shawn shares his personal experience with his wife, Ashley. Years ago, they noticed that they were communicating and realized they needed to improve their communication skills. So they sought out couples therapy, which was one of the best decisions they made together. The counseling sessions helped them in five different ways, including learning about themselves and how they relate in relationships and connecting better as a couple.

Couples need to understand that counseling can be a helpful tool for improving relationships, even if there are no big issues present. Coming into the process with a calm mindset and the desire to make something good even better can lead to a more productive outcome. However, if underlying traumas prevent great relationships, it's best to seek out a personal therapist or couples counselor.

It's also important to understand that a relationship has three components: the individual, the other person, and the relationship itself. What is suitable for one person may not be good for the other, but by understanding the relationship as its own entity, the couple can work towards what is best for them both.

In conclusion, it's normal for relationships to experience lulls or boredom at times, but it's essential to address these issues before they become more significant problems. Couples counseling can be a helpful tool for improving communication and connection. Couples can strengthen their relationship by adopting a non-apathetic mindset and taking responsibility for it.

Because Apathy is the enemy of strong relationships.
