There is a pretty large misconception floating around that seeing a therapist is looked upon as being weak, or embarrassing. And we get it, in the past it was common to hold your emotions inside. Especially men. You were looked upon to be strong and to not show your issues.
But it doesn't have to be that way. It shouldn't be. And that can change, if you let it.
There are more and more certified therapists out there now to help with an array of topics, people, societies, issues, etc. And unfortunately in this day, almost 50 percent of marriages end in divorce or separation. It's an alarming number that doesn't seem to have an end in sight. But with that, we have therapists and counselors that are specifically trained for couples who are having internal issues with their marriage.
And you don't have to think of a therapist only to resolve or work on problems that are already active in your relationship. Our marriage counseling Lewisville TX friends have gone on record to talk about how positive it can be to see a therapists when you are newlyweds or even if you are both perfectly happy with the marriage.
"We do have a decent amount of clients that contact us just to schedule individual sessions. Where we like to discuss their lives and find the positives to continue to build on. Many times there isn't a particular issue to focus on, but just ways to verbally communicate how things are going. Open communication will easily lead to more happiness."
Doesn't everyone deserve to be happy?
Of course you do! There are always things to work on. Just like your favorite football or basketball player. They may get paid millions to be the best of the best, but they still go to practice every day to better their craft. Why shouldn't you do the same for your relationship with your spouse? Learning communicative skills, along with signs that could lead to potential issues ahead of time, could save a lot of stress between the two of you.
