Stress can make people withdrawn, angry, and distracted. It can completely deplete someone of energy, self-control, and empathy. Naturally, over time, these behaviors can contribute to relationship problems, especially when conflicts are left unresolved. Many different circumstances can cause stress and strain on relationships, but leaving these issues unresolved can be harmful. Sometimes, it can even lead to the end of the relationship itself.
How Stress Affects Relationships
Difficult life circumstances like chronic illnesses, parenting differences, infidelity, or financial problems can all cause stress in relationships. Chronic relationship stress can also contribute to mental health problems like depression and low self-esteem. Addictive behaviors may even develop, further isolating one partner from the other. While too much stress in a relationship can lead to a breakup, there are ways to overcome it and rebuild a healthy, mutually-satisfying relationship.

“So far amazing. No pressure, listens and asks questions. I was very skeptical about this, but just after two interactions I feel comfortable speaking; and it’s taken me a long time to start talking to someone again.”
