Couples Therapy – Growing Apart
How did you get to a place where you no longer feel like a team? I am sure it’s not an easy question to answer…but what I can assume is that LIFE JUST HAPPENED.
Now all of sudden, something lead to the recognition that you are growing apart and living parallel lives.
This can feel sad, frustrating, and overwhelming. It may feel like your working 100 times harder just to catch up to where you were before in the relationship. This will lead to feelings of rejection and not being good enough.
One of you may be recognizing this drift more than the other, but I promise it is hard on both of your hearts. You both probably wonder why are we still even here. It’s because we are wired for connection and although the pain and hurt run so deep and feelings of anger may emerge, I also know that their is something about your bond that holds you together. Even if you can’t name it.
SO WHAT SHOULD YOU DO ABOUT THAT FEELING? AND HOW CAN MARRIAGE COUNSELING BE HELPFUL?
I will help you guys find a way to reconnect to your love for one another and stop the cycle of blame that may have crept up in the relationship.
Blame is just a form of confusion and defensiveness. I will help shift this pattern and way of thinking and help you both heal from pain points in your relationship that are blocking you both from feeling that love and connection.
By being able to give each other “glimpses in” to what is happening in your head and in your heart will begin the process of healing and being able to show up for each other in a new way.
