But soon, I realized that my expectations were far from reality.
Raj's family was conservative and traditional. They did not accept me as their daughter-in-law. They criticized me for everything I did or did not do.
They made me feel unwelcome and unwanted. They even tried to convince Raj to divorce me and marry someone else. I don't know why it happened but that was all that was.
The therapist was very friendly and professional. She listened to me patiently and empathetically. She asked me some questions to understand my situation better. She then explained to me the concept of couple therapy and how it works.
She said that couple therapy is a form of psychotherapy that helps couples improve their relationship by resolving conflicts, enhancing communication, and strengthening bonds.
She said that couple therapy can help couples deal with various issues, such as adjustment problems, intimacy issues, trust issues, infidelity, abuse, divorce, etc. She said that couple therapy can help couples rediscover their love, respect, and compatibility.
Raj agreed to join the session. The IWill therapist then started the therapy process. She used various techniques and exercises to help us communicate better, understand each other better, empathize with each other better, and appreciate each other better. She helped us identify and address the root causes of our problems.
She helped us find solutions and strategies to cope with our challenges. She helped us set goals and expectations for our relationship. She helped us rebuild our trust and respect for each other. She helped us rekindle our romance and passion for each other.
The therapy process was not easy. It was challenging and painful at times. We had to face our fears, our insecurities, our mistakes, our regrets. We had to confront our differences, our conflicts, our resentments.
We had to open up, be honest, be vulnerable. We had to listen, be respectful, be supportive. We had to compromise, be flexible, be adaptable. We had to change, be positive, be hopeful.
We are grateful to IWill and our therapist for helping us save our marriage.
We are thankful for the opportunity to start afresh, with a new vision, a new mission, and a new purpose.
We are hopeful for the future, with a new confidence, a new optimism, and a new enthusiasm. Raj loves me, never ignores me, stands by me.
I feel heard and seen
