Chaos in Marriage/Relationships

Chaos in a marriage can be a difficult thing to talk about. We often assume that our spouse is going through the same things we are when in reality they’re not.

It can be easy for us to see only what we want, rather than getting an accurate view of our partner’s thoughts and feelings.

You may experience emotional turmoil because someone close to you has changed, feelings have been hurt, or even worse they’ve cheated on us! 

Might not know how to fix the marriage, or you’re scared of what will happen if you do

An agreement where both people will start hanging out less often or no longer share common interests.

Either you or them have a stronger or bossy personality. 

Manipulation whenever is needed.

Mistrust or Jealousy. 

Chaos at Work

This is very difficult to deal with as it’s the workplace where you need to go everyday and maybe for long lengths of time.  Always remember, the day will end and that’s when you can relax. It would be awesome if you work environment was pleasant and enjoyable.

Heavy demands on your physical labor and strength from working long hours at work or outside jobs

Other people are not fulfilling their duties so you have to complete them.

Very demanding, need to stay back, do extra time, etc.

Your boss never giving you praise.

Being the go to person but barely getting a thank-you. 

This is to name a few but you know I could keep going and going…. but I won’t.
