We are a social animal, and our internal well being and sense of who we are can be severely affected when we are experiencing relationship issues.
If we a involved in a relationship breakdown we can experience issues of self worth and esteem, become distressed and depressed, have feelings of loss and can also have feelings of injustice and unfairness, we may also experience feelings of anger towards the other person.
As we feel the pressure in relationship we may turn to coping with alcohol or other familiar defences such as lashing out or blaming our selves for everything that’s wrong in the relationship.
We can experience patterns within relationships often feeling like ‘here we go again’ or ‘why does this always happen to me’.
We can feel oppressed or controlled in some relationships and not know how to cope or how to end the relationship or of course if we want to end it.
