Picture a scenario where you’ve been on the grind and exasperated from a long day of work. The phone is buzzing, and you see an incoming call from your significant other on the caller ID. As you pick up immediately, relieved to hear their voice after such a chaotic morning, the feeling is not reciprocated. Instead, you answering the call leads to a disheartening argument that makes you feel like the dregs of the ocean.
“The domino effect that trickles into your professional life as a result of challenges in your personal life is insidious. Having to juggle our needs, wants, and aspirations, all while trying to maintain our composure amidst the craziness that surrounds us is an uphill battle for many of us, especially those with great ambition and dreams,” says the founder of Clarity, Lisa Fei.
The Domino Effect of Dysfunctional Relationships
Count your lucky stars if your love life isn’t a heap of a smoldering fire. For the great majority, dysfunctional love life can cause even the best of us to shut down in all other areas of our lives—this holds true especially for those who are high-functioning and in leadership positions. The stress of an unhealthy relationship can be crippling, especially when you’re already under tremendous pressure to impress your superiors, coworkers, and peers.
Few relationships are free of dysfunction in one way or another. Odds are, you’ve seen it in the relationships of those around you. Safe to say, we’ve all witnessed, or perhaps lived, the consequences of an unhealthy relationship. For highly ambitious people who are particularly dedicated to the professional sphere of their lives, balancing even a healthy relationship can be challenging.
The sacrifices that many make in the name of their career and the preceding cancellations or absences alone can put a strain on any relationship. The aforementioned habits that stem from a dysfunctional love life can lead a high-performing person’s downward spiral into a black hole.
When one’s needs aren’t being met, they may experience the deterioration of their mental psyche, which manifests in the physical body. In a matter of time, the deterioration of the mind can lead us to dangerous pitfalls such as substance abuse, body dysmorphia, depression, avoidance, anti-social behavior, suicidal ideation, etc.

Working with a psychologist or a therapist can be costly in terms of time and money, and just merely seeing them on a weekly or monthly basis may not suffice in giving you the tools you really need to navigate your love life.
