The saying is true: Relationships require work. Oftentimes, partners are able to resolve couples' issues on their own by improving open communication, having more patience and understanding for one another, as well as cultivating empathy, to list a few examples. However, when truly challenging times arise, some partners could find themselves at a loss of how to effectively communicate their needs and feelings, especially when they are struggling to maintain their emotional connection and support for each other.
