Trying to work on issues in my marriage. Anyone open to sharing/talking about shared struggles?
Hey! Not married but I can listen if you have anything to share… let’s see if I could be of any help.
I have issues with my parents
And I am trying from the last three years to get things right and enjoy living like a happy family
But somehow it ends in a bad way
Im married and im here. I also had struggles. What particular issues in marriage do you have?
Sorry, I didn’t realize you responded. I’m new to this and trying to figure out how it works.
The struggles are that my husband is working with a therapist, as am I, each separately. He’s getting help for his insomnia which stems from his childhood traumas. I’m seeking help to better understand how to handle the challenges that come with being married to an adult survivor of childhood abuse and is an alcoholic. I’ve asked for marriage counseling but of our counselors say we should work separately. However, I feel very along in my marriage. I feel like his caregiver rather than his wife. I support us financially, we don’t sleep in the same bed or even in the same room and I can’t get him to respond to whether he wants to work on our marriage. I feel very alone.
Just saw what ur goin through and thought will help you out in someway.
In a marriage u can put in efforts to some extent after which can’t do anything.
It’s good that u guys are goin for therapies but as an individual you need to have atleast 30% desire to recover, else even therapies won’t work…Considering your situation it’s obvious that ur feeling lonely… Loneliness is horrible… Pls do talk to people and get out of the loneliness you got… I am married too, but on the verge of separation… Hope my words help!!
