What motivates me?
Unresolved conflict in the family is energy draining and emotionally stressful. Think about the many individuals who spring to mind when you reflect on family arguments and relationship breakdown. Some issues come and go, some are prolonged over weeks, months or years. Litigation has its place, but for the majority of cases, in our experience, the Courtroom often inflates tensions, increases what is already a highly emotive and stressful process for the individuals involved.
Relationships are an important aspect of life and if there is an issue in a family relationship the stress and emotional aftermath can often pervade other areas of life. Relationship breakdown can be a lonely process despite having the support of friends and family. Disagreements, arguments and relationship breakdown are a part of life, what is important is how the situation is dealt with and how to move on from the experience.
