Your partner isn’t your therapist

No matter how much your partner loves you and wants to support you during difficult times, when things get really rough, it can be a lot of pressure to ask them to lift you up. It can be a lot to ask just one person to keep you afloat during challenging times. Matthews says, “The individual therapy provides a space for the person seeking support to have a resource as he or she navigates life changes such as grief, job loss, meaning of life issues, mental health challenges, and physical health concerns.” Some of those topics are major, and probably should be discussed with a mental health expert instead of just those in one’s social circle.
