Relationships are an invaluable and necessary part of our lives. They bring us warmth, fulfillment and a sense of purpose. When we have strong connections with our partners, family, friends and colleagues, we are at our healthiest and most productive. We rely on our relationships for advice, support and companionship.
As wonderful as relationships are, they require effort to maintain. Effective social skills, communication skills and interpersonal skills are all needed to keep our relationships functioning in a healthy manner. These skills don’t come automatically; they are learned through experience, over time. Sometimes our most important relationships can break down for a variety of reasons and leave us feeling confused, frustrated, sad or lonely.
