Finding Myself Amidst My Husband’s Ignorance: A Journey of Transformation Through Therapy

IWill blogs

My name is Meera, and I’ve been married to Raj for the past five years. Initially, our marriage was a dream come true. However, things took a drastic turn when Raj’s father passed away, leaving his mother alone. Raj, being the dutiful son, naturally devoted more time to his mother, which I understood and supported. But soon, his attention to her became all-consuming.

His mother, constantly in need of Raj's presence, began to subtly manipulate him against me. She made small remarks about how I was not taking care of the household or her son properly. Raj, influenced by his mother, started to believe her. He began to ignore me, dismiss my feelings, and spend all his time with her. I felt like an outsider in my own home, a stranger in my marriage.

Taking Help and Transformation

Desperate for a way out, I turned to IWill therapy sessions. It was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Empathy and Understanding: My therapist listened to me with genuine empathy, making me feel heard and validated for the first time in years. She helped me understand that my feelings were valid and that I deserved respect and love.
Self-Esteem and Self-Concept Enhancement: Through various exercises and affirmations, my therapist helped me rebuild my self-esteem. I began to see my worth and started to stand up for myself.
Emotional Boundaries: I learned the importance of setting emotional boundaries. I realized that while Raj had responsibilities towards his mother, it didn’t mean he could neglect our marriage.
Assertive Communication: My therapist guided me on how to communicate my feelings assertively yet respectfully. I had honest conversations with Raj about my feelings and the impact his actions were having on our relationship.
Couple Therapy: We also underwent couple-therapy sessions. The therapist helped Raj see the emotional strain I was under and how his mother’s manipulations were damaging our marriage. Raj began to understand the importance of balancing his responsibilities and our relationship.
Standing Up for Myself: I learned to stand up for myself when faced with emotional abuse. I no longer allowed myself to be a silent victim. I took charge of my happiness and well-being.

Today, our relationship has improved significantly. Raj and I have found a balance that respects his duties towards his mother and our marriage. He now makes a conscious effort to spend quality time with me and listen to my concerns. Our bond has grown stronger, and I feel loved and valued once again.
My professional life has also taken a positive turn. With my renewed self-confidence, I’m more focused and productive at work. Socially, I’ve reconnected with friends and family, feeling proud of the changes I’ve made.

To anyone facing similar challenges, I urge you to seek help. Therapy can be a powerful tool in transforming your life. It helped me reclaim my happiness and rebuild my marriage. Remember, you deserve to be loved, respected, and valued. Don’t hesitate to take that first step towards healing and transformation. FOR IWIll therapy link is below
