Why My Relationships Suck

How to Create Strong Relationships with Courage and Heart

The key to a successful relationship is understanding why your current one sucks.


If you’re like most people, you want a relationship but don’t know how to create a happy, thriving, successful one. You’ve tried and failed and have even tried again, often repeating the same mistakes. You know what you don’t want but not what you want. And underneath it all, you have a deep sense of shame, failure and loneliness—even though you’re in a relationship.

This was the story of my life. I hit rock bottom when I broke into my drug dealer’s house to find my then wife having an affair with him. Talk about a wake up call. It took my first marriage exploding to face the fact that the common denominator in all of my failed relationships was me.

No matter how much your current relationship sucks, no matter how many failed relationships you’ve had, there is a way to stop your relationship from sinking and start learning simple yet effective strategies for how to experience the legendary relationship that makes you want to be a better man.
