Negative Relationship Behaviors – The Negative Cascade

This entry is part 3 of 9 in the series Staying Together – How to Build a healthy Relationship

A relationship in trouble is one that falls into a negative cascade.

One negative reaction leads to the next until there is a seemingly insurmountable wall between the two partners. Relationships that enter this destructive phase need attention and can benefit from the trustworthy, confidential intervention of a professional therapist. Sometimes the two partners fail to notice when they have entered this cycle because they feel justified in reacting as they do – but the price they pay is the slow erosion of their relationship.

It may seem impossible for them to recapture the love that brought them together in the first place.
