Couples Therapy is Magic

Well, at least it is if you both are committed to making changes and take responsibility for your own actions

Fortunately, both Mr. Artist and I are committed to making us work

We got to address the issues I ranted about in my last post and we’ve (mostly him) have made some adjustments

When it comes down to it, I love him very much

And the truth is, we are still getting used to each other

He told me I have to stop catastrophizing our relationship every time we hit a rough patch

I admit it, I do that

So that’s what I’m going to work on

There is hope, even when I’m scared

I’m scared to repeat my past mistakes

To marry the same person all over again

But he’s not the same

He says he’s going to make changes, and he does

I watch him like a hawk to see if he falters

He hasn’t yet

It’s been 2 years

So maybe it’s safe

Maybe it’s okay for me to get angry, hurt, and frustrated without thinking it’s the end

Maybe the issues we encounter just means that we are imperfect and need to work on them just like any other couple does

Maybe I have to stop being so afraid and just accept that this is good

That we are good.

I am an avid fan of creating narratives in my head about random experiences and quotes for future books I will probably not write. I harbor a 15 year old girl in my psyche and like to solve world issues when I'm half asleep. View all posts by samlobos
