You hardly talk to me anymore
When I come through the door at the end of the day
I remember when you couldn’t wait to love me
Used to hate to leave me…
It used to be so natural
To talk about forever
But used-to-be’s don’t count anymore
They just lay on the floor ’til we sweep them away…
These are some of the lyrics from a well known song written by Neil Diamond and sung by many artists over the years. The lyrics tell a common tale that many struggle with. Do you relate? Does it feel like your relationship used to be easier? Do you feel alone in your marriage? Do you wish you could talk about the future with hope again?
There can be hope again in disconnected relationships. But, it will take some work. Are you willing to put in the effort? Here at Swinton & Boyle Counseling we are trying to help couples from Utah in just such a situation. We told you a month ago about daily challenges that would be starting in 2018. We are now in full swing and have been releasing daily challenges for couples who want to feel close again (#strongercouples365). Visit any of our social media pages to find and participate in these challenges:
These challenges are simple but meaningful. They will help you know what to do when you come through the door at the end of the day. Then, instead of trying to remember when things were good, things will feel natural again.
