Lost the lustre from the beginning of your relationship? Couple therapy might just be the flint stone that helps reignite that spark. Was that too cheesy? That wasn’t really the intention. However, sometimes the brevity of an issue, such as problems within a marriage are best addressed lightly.
Through couple therapy, you can identify the small problems that are leading to larger problems and an overall dissatisfaction with the relationship can be addressed. You learn to look at the bigger picture. You learn to change your thought process, looking beyond the problem at the greater things in the grander scheme of life.
Some relationships really are unhealthy. These are the kind that involves problems such as infidelity, substance abuse, domestic abuse or mental abuse. However, sometimes your partner may just need some depression help.
Depression help may be needed and it is often a need that goes unrealized. If you feel like your marriage is not being experienced to its full potential, for no apparent reason, therapy may lead to identifying a solution than fighting amongst one another.
It is important to get depression help at the right time, supported by your significant other, helping you nip it in the bud as soon as possible. There could be a multitude of reasons why depression suddenly occurs. A change in lifestyle after marriage, lack of job satisfaction, lack of intellectual or physical satisfaction or an overall feeling of disinterest in your life can indicate depression. The outlets of depression may not be healthy for your marriage as you may end up venting out feelings you cannot explain, through unreasonable needs.
Getting depression help or couple therapy at the right time would save not one but two minds from a deteriorating mental health scenario. It is important to be considerate towards your partner and either support them through therapy if they need it or allow them to encourage you , by accepting you need it, if at all you face symptoms of depression.
