Interpersonal Issues Therapy in Chicago, Illinois
We are never alone; even when we are completely by ourselves. Other people are always a big part of our lived experiences. As we are unable to control or predict others’ behaviors, it is inevitable to have interpersonal issues from time to time. Sometimes, we have to grow up with an overly controlling parent. Other times, we have to find our way into a professional department that has existing cliques and power struggles. In some cases, these issues are apparent as day, like a nosy neighbor watching us from their window or being shy about expressing our feelings to someone we are crushing on. In other cases, these experiences may be excruciating, like suspecting that we are not properly paid at work but not being able to say something or moving to a new city/state/country and having to learn how to interact with people who have a completely different culture by bits and pieces through numerous excruciating interactions.
Some examples of interpersonal issues include: lack of trust, interdependence, disrespect, avoidance, alienation, poor communication, jealousy, bullying, gossiping and nosiness, toxic behavior, shyness, romantic conflicts, isolation, social anxiety, cultural conflicts, controlling behavior, deception, financial conflicts, group dynamics or cliques, peer pressure, fixations, adaptation, poor boundaries, power struggles, and political clashes.
This means that each person has to go through numerous interpersonal issues over the course of their lives. Therefore, it is extremely important to understand the role of interpersonal relationships in our lives and protect ourselves against negative mental health impacts of related issues.
