Thriveworks Marriage and Couples Counseling in Wellesley MA
Relationships Aren’t Meant to Make You Miserable
No one enters a relationship with the goal of being miserable. Instead, people seek out relationships to add happiness and togetherness to their lives. A relationship is supposed to make our lives better. But even the perfect beginning and the best of intentions doesn’t always lead to a perfect outcome in a relationship. Sometimes the challenges you face in your romantic life can get in the way.
You may notice that, as the relationship goes on, your satisfaction decreases. The struggles you face trying to reinforce your relationship, to support your partner and stay positive yourself aren’t enough. Many times, when things get hard, people think they’re stuck.
However, if you find yourself in an unhappy relationship, you have more choices than continuing with the status quo or abandoning the relationship and starting over. Our counselors can help you discover ways that you can transform your relationship, things you and your partner can do to address the issues in the relationship that take away from your happiness.
Why We Do What We Do
Our couples counselors and therapists in Wellesley want to work with you to improve your relationship. We want to help you rediscover that joy you found when you first met your partner. We know that there are two individuals in the relationship, and that both of you have ideas about how things should be, about the way the relationship should work. Sometimes, these unspoken expectations are aligned. Many times, though, they aren’t.
Sometimes we need help to see the real reasons we’re not happy in our relationship. We know you may not always be able identify the problem yourself, no matter how hard you’ve looked. When you and your partner aren’t on the same page, it can make it difficult to truly resolve the tensions you feel. Initially you may have been able to put aside these differences, but they can resurface if not resolved. Reviewing your relationship, and the expectations you have for yourself and your partner, together with a professional, is the best way to begin.
