Connection and Disconnection: 5 Powerful Resources for Healinghttps://savethemarriage.com/stmblog/wp-content/themes/corpus/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg 150 150 Lee H. Baucom, Ph.D. Lee H. Baucom, Ph.D. https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/669b7e375d93f77521ddaba08adb8063?s=96&d=blank&r=pg
In my book, I note the 3 steps to saving a marriage:
- Connect with your spouse.
- Change yourself.
- Create a new path.
Connecting with your spouse is HUGE. In fact, the leading issue with marriages is that disconnection. Heal the disconnection, and the relationship can stabilize. It does not do away with steps 2 and 3. In fact, #2 needs to be concurrent to reconnecting. But #3, “create a new path,” is much easier when the connection is healing.
So how DO you do that?
Let me point you to some resources that will help you begin the process. Below are links to the resources, so that you can quickly access and heal your relationship.
This is a great starting point. You can begin to understand the ways we have misunderstood connection, so that you can move in the RIGHT direction.
This will help you assess where your relationship is right now! How deeply disconnected are you? Once you know this, you can begin to create your plan to reconnect.
This resource will help you start the process of reversing the disconnection and move toward reconnection.
When you are hurting, angry, and frustrated, it can be difficult to even work on the connection. But YOU may be the only one ready to work on it. Courageous Compassion can help you choose a better path. This resource will help you move in that direction.
One other resource is about showing up. When you don’t show up, you don’t connect. And here is the great thing: you can ALWAYS show up. You can always decide you will show up in your relationship. Find out how!
If you are ready to really step up and heal your disconnection, you may be ready for some more advanced training. If you are, please email me and I will tell you how you can access that. Email me here: [email protected]
