"Learn to reach for the people you love. Nothing grows people like love. When we are loved, we blossom." - Dr. Sue Johnson
The fighting won't end.
You long for the time when you felt your partner would do anything for you.
There are so many hurts, it seems impossible to get past them.
You know they can't read your mind but why don't they just get what you need from them after so many years.
You long to be loved but your partner seems to just shut down when you beg for that love and you're fearful they'll just leave you in the end.
Or maybe your partner is overwhelming with their needs and you feel like you'll never be enough to meet them.
You can have the relationship where beyond all else, you know your partner will love you unconditionally and provide you the sense of security you didn't even know was possible. The emotional connection you long for is possible. That you will be enough to meet their needs.
