My boyfriend is not doing well mentally but he has always been the perfect boyfriend and at the same time he is not in a good space rn and he opened up to me yesterday about how he wants to end it all but he won’t cz that would hurt me but regardless I’m really worried about him and being a psychology student I told him he need to talk to a professional and I have just recovered from my traumas and he is very adamant he won’t take therapy and I really wanna help him but idk how
Give him time and be patient.
Be strong as he might seriously end this. The could be any like , he thinks that if you stay with him , you will also suffer or maybe he genuinely just want to stay alone for some time. Or maybe something else.
I don’t know but if is not considering consulting a therapist then you can do nothing until he wants to fight back to his misery.
Seeing a therapist would really help him, but it’s going to be difficult. I’ve been going through a similar experience but I’ve not had the courage to see a therapist yet. It’s a really big step and he’s lucky to have you in his life. Help him take that next step cause it would be really worth it
