Some relationships are easier than others. Most women have experienced a difficult or challenging relationship at some point in their lives. This experience is especially painful when it is one of a woman’s primary relationships. Usually, communication is the biggest piece of the problem. People do not always have the skills necessary to communicate effectively without hurting one another. Some of the most common relationships that women may struggle with are: parent-child relationships, spousal relationships, sibling relationships, and in-law relationships. Talking with a therapist can help a woman develop the skill set necessary for dealing with dysfunctional relationships.
