Family is primarily defined as the couple or individual
who have children, and secondarily as those who are members
of a common ancestry.
the third and more relevant definition is: a harmonious
group bound together by a common interest. This includes
businesses, community organizations, churches, and other
groups where people work together with a common goal.
Relationship Problems: Finding the Connections
The problems and issues that arise in the many different
families and relationships in our lives are intricately
linked in ways that may not seem so obvious.
Problems that arise in our romantic relationships, for
example, often crop up in the workplace as well. This is
usually because they have their roots in unresolved issues
from the past, often originating in childhood.
Realizing the connections between the dynamics of our different
relationships can lead us to transformative change. By gaining
a clearer insight into nonproductive interactions, and learning
healthier, more aware ways of relating, all "family"
members can achieve:
More joy and happiness in their interactions
More cooperative, trusting relationships
More balance and harmony in day-to-day family living
More effective communication

life, take the first step today!
