How to Solve Problems in Your Relationship

Have you ever had a problem in your relationship and you just couldn't figure out how to solve it or know what to do about it? The good news is you are not alone and as you know the truth is that problems will always come in your relationship and it will always be something that you are faced with. The key is learning how to solve them and what to do about them.

Oftentimes when women have problems in their relationships they seem to complain about the problem, complain to their man about the problem, tell their girlfriends about the problem, or just put their head in the sand and ignore the problem. This type of problem solving strategy is not going to help your relationship. It is only going to make matters worse and hurt your relationship.

The first step in solving a problem in your relationship is to identify the problem.

The second step is to identify who caused the problem. Sometimes a problem in your relationship is the result of outside influences or lack of communication.

The third step is to come up with a plan to solve the problem. Take some time to sit down with your partner and come up with a list of solutions to the problem. Once you've created your list of solutions both of you need to agree on the solution.

The fourth step is to take action. Whatever solution you and your partner have decided, you both need to begin to resolve the problem.

The fifth step is to forgive. Forgive yourself and the person who created the problem. The reason that you want to forgive is to keep your heart clean, restore your relationship, and avoid making decisions out of bitterness.
