How Did we get here?
As we face new challenges in life, we also face a need to adapt. We adapt to getting married, living together, and becoming parents. While these are some of the most exciting times in our lives, they can also be incredibly stressful.
Sometimes, it's hard to adapt. We stay stuck in old routines because they're comfortable or feel safe. We go to an extreme and change so much that we leave our partner's head spinning. The same puzzle pieces that used to fit together so perfectly become a bit mismatched.
Over time, it feels like you've drifted apart. Your spouse no longer understands you and doesn't care to try. The person you once sought comfort from feels like an acquaintance or, sadly, the enemy.
This can change.
