I Wish I Would Have Suggested Couples Therapy

I Wish I Would Have Suggested Couples Therapy

Jun 27

A close friend of mine, (who shall remain nameless), was married to another one of my closest friends, (who will also remain nameless). The wedding was fantastic. We stayed off the coast of Virginia in a large house, and the ceremony was on the beach. It was a stunning ceremony for two terrific people. Everyone there had a good time: the families and friends of both parties just meshed. The newly-wed couple was great for many years, and I could not have been happier that two of my closest friend found each other and loved each other so much. Almost suddenly, things started to change, and now my two closest friends are no longer together.

Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of meditating. While meditating, the goal is to free your mind of thoughts and stressors. Recently, however, I have been unable to forget about my two close friends and their separation. I always wondered if there was anything I could have done to help save the marriage. They were an excellent couple with a happy marriage. I wish there was something I could have done.

When things started going south, I was put in a very strange position because I was close to both people in the marriage. I grew up with the husband, and I met the wife in college, through the husband. Because I was in such a tough spot, I felt that had I given advice to either person, it would have been interpreted as picking a favorite. I did not want to give anyone that impression. Of course, I did all I could to keep them together, but in the end, it did not work out.

I wanted to go back to my normal meditation routine. I needed to clear my mind of my regrets and thoughts about the separation of my two close friends. As important as they were to me, so is my medication, so I decided to do a little research to help clear my head.

One website explained couples therapy. According to the site, this type of therapy is designed to combat a number of issues that ultimately cause couples to split up. The more common types of problems between couple include lack of communication, conflict, and resentment, drifting apart, and differences in parenting style. The point of couple therapy is to solve some problem in a relationship by putting both people in a room with a mediator.

Hindsight is 20/20, but I wish my friends would have gone to couples therapy. If I had to guess, it seemed like the two were drifting apart as time went on, and it seems like couple therapy could have been a good solution. I now know what I will suggest if two of my friend go through a similar situation, and I hope you are equipped with the knowledge now, too.
