Changing the way your relationship functions often requires doing things differently. We've highlighted some useful ideas and advice for people who want to create meaningful and lasting change in their relationships.
Be honest with yourself; if you begin with facts that are inaccurate you will not fix the real situation.
Be specific; identify the behaviors of the people involved, not what you think they might be thinking.
Be willing to make some changes in life.
Think about how your life will be different once you have taken on the situation.
Give yourself a chance to succeed. Prioritize by taking on the most serious problems first. You can only fix one problem at a time.
Take your time to let things work; try not to rush things.
