Everyone is in a relationship with somebody. Whether it’s with your boss, your co-worker, your partner, your mother, or your son, you are always in a relationship.
And because we never learned the skills we need to feel truly connected to others, while also being able to stand up for ourselves in a healthy way, your relationships may be a source of stress for you.
You might find that you can’t stop people-pleasing and are feeling burnt out from putting everyone’s needs before your own.
Or you’re quick to get defensive whenever your partner expresses a complaint.
Maybe you keep dating emotionally unavailable people and have no idea why.
Or you find yourself constantly worrying about other people and their behaviors.
Whatever issues are getting in the way of you living a relationally and emotionally fulfilling life, I believe group is the absolute best way for you to overcome them.
You don’t know what you don’t know. Interpersonal interactions within group can bring up behaviors, feelings, and thoughts you may not have realized were barriers to positive connection with others.
Multiple perspectives. With more eyes on you than just your therapist, you have the opportunity to gain even more valuable insights and feedback.
Group members are not your friends or family. Because there is less emotional attachment to group members you are more willing to take risks in terms of vulnerability and confronting difficult issues, without fear of losing an important person in your life.
Accountability. When you’re connected to a group of people, there’s nowhere to hide! That might sound scary, but it’s really amazing how much more progress you can make when others are keeping you on track with your goals.
