TheConfidante In the Media
How do you picture yourself in your relationship?
The Incredible Hulk, Catwoman, The Grinch or Mr Magoo blindly fumbling your way through the darkness?
Clients in troubled relationships frequently tell me that they find themselves as a former shadow of their exuberant super self. They have trouble focusing at work, feel depressed and only have a vague memory of being confident and fun-loving.
But, they used to be so happy.
Naturally, they want to blame their partners.
Here are just a few of the reasons why you might not be feeling like the best version of yourself in your relationship:
If you are experiencing persistent depressive or anxious symptoms for no apparent reason. Today is the day to draw a line in the sand and seek out support to adopt healthy thoughts about yourself to yourself. One cause is unhelpful habits of toxic self-talk formulated from bad life experiences that bog you down.
You and your partner should both contribute to your relationship with a healthy sense of self founded in the knowledge of what you deserve in your relationship. Even Shrek and Fiona worked this out and lived happily ever after!
