Marriage Counseling in Wilmington, NC
You can’t seem to get on the same page with your partner. The closeness you felt in the past just isn’t there anymore. You argue and find thatyou are getting nowhere. The problems seem to keep getting worse, not better. You feel disconnected and lonely. You want your best friend back. Couples counseling has been on your mind.
You may think:
“What happened to us?”
“Why does [my partner] always do that even though I’ve asked them not to?”
“Does my partner even care about me anymore?”
“I love [my partner], but if something doesn’t change, I don’t know how I can hold on.”
You may find yourself:
- Repeating the same arguments over and over again.
- One partner becoming defensive and the other partner shutting down.
- Feeling hopeless about connecting with your partner again.
- Sitting on opposite sides of the couch, staring at your phone, and feeling like your partner is totally disinterested in you.
