Quotes on relationships can be a source of help. Quotes can inspire people to think and feel in fresh ways about important problems.

Relationships are a dance in the messiness of life. We can all use more guideposts along the way.

This page is intended to be a breath of fresh air into old stuck ways of thinking and feeling. For example, never go to bed angry is terrible relationship advice. Arguing long into the night only makes things ugly. Wake up fresh & revisit the topic, I guarantee a greater possibility of success in problem solving.

Everyone arrives in my office describing themselves as having communication problems. There is a safety in starting there, which I completely understand, we all have to begin somewhere. However communication problems are really power struggles.

Everybody has power struggles. When someone over reacts it’s a power play to stop the dialogue. They want to monologue and win. These are the kinds of things I hope you will begin to think about to achieve greater success.

My own quotes are reproduced here from pictures I have taken and added words to for instagram and twitter. You can find me and follow me on both @rhodaoncouples. I’m all about YOU learning about relationship survival here.
