Are you not getting what you want in relationships?
Relationships can stretch you to the limit when you're always the one giving. You can burn yourself out by saying yes when you really mean no. You may even think you're right - but that isn't the solution either.
Maybe you're starting to see a side of yourself that's hard to admit. Your reactions are stating to get the best of you - and not in a good way.
You've tried to push past the pain, but nothing changes. You find yourself yelling at the kids and snapping at your husband for the littlest things. Giving up what's important to you doesn't work, and now you feel more resentful than ever. There is nothing lonelier than feeling invisible or unappreciated in a relationship.
Having a good relationship doesn't have to be hard, but without the right tools, it can be easy to get lost in the pain. Taking care of yourself has to become a priority, or you'll keep doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.
It Only Takes One Person to Change a Relationship
When you change, your relationships changes. With support you can learn to take better care of yourself so that you don't rely too much on your relationship.
In counseling, you'll learn what's not working on your end. Being willing to look at yourself is the start of real change. The other person doesn't have to come with you even if you think they are the problem.
We'll Work Together to Make Small But Important Changes
Issues like people pleasing, poor boundaries, family disputes and addictions cause tension and hurt. Expressing yourself honestly without blame leads to increased intimacy. Plus, you feel better about yourself because you can say what you mean without saying it mean.
Counseling can help you do that. When you get the support you need, you'll make positive changes when you're ready.
In counseling you'll learn:
- When and how to talk things out.
- How to take better care of yourself in relationships.
- Know what your needs are and how to get them met.
- What healthy boundaries are and how to practice them.
- What you can control and what you can't.
- How to communicate without being mean or feeling guilty.
