Can My Marriage Be Saved? (part 2)

Can My Marriage Be Saved? (part 2)

Denver Psychotherapy

After this willingness and awareness are present, the Denver marriage counseling process cultivates true communication. It is very easy for us, as human beings, to mindlessly get out of step with each other. This is the primary reason why the old bromide that “relationships are hard work” tends to be true.

Giving up? 

 

Shutting yourself away doesn’t really improve the situation. At best, you will remain in stasis, and not get worse, but not get better. The best strategy I found is to strengthen your physical self. Treat your body as a container for your mental and emotional/spiritual self. If the container is stronger, your mental side will be better able to function as well. So to start – eat clean (no junk food, protein at every meal, and lots of green veg), sleep a full 8 -10 hours/night, and exercise 30 minutes/day. If you can do this, you will be significantly less depressed. Then on the mental side – find a hobby that you can develop yourself more with. It doesn’t have to be anything in particular other than you have a sincere interest in it. Find a group class that you can join, and that will start you in the #social direction. If you become more confident socially, you might be able to find some self satisfaction . If not, then at least you will have more friends, and possibly they might know someone and of course that’s you

Start from now and here you are important don’t de evaluate and exhaust yourself … good luck.

Pursue passions

psychopath-1

Believing in your own abilities allows you to pursue passions that can inspire others. Once you truly start believing in yourself and focusing on your positive qualities, you’ll be able to pursue your passions and spend time doing what you love. When you allow yourself to be who you are and follow your heart, you will be able to share your passion with the world. The more you believe in yourself, the more you will open up and share with others — and what you share just might be the very inspiration someone else needs.

Can we start a new life at 40?

First of all this is very important to know that whether she annoys you or you get annoyed because of her due to many psychological factors like,her beauty,her confidence,her patience?Verbal abuse is a subcategory of emotional or psychological abuse..

Asking this question shows that you feel sensitive and guilty for your such behavior..am I right? actually we are in the era where we are not as committed to our partners as our elders used to be. but it looks like you two are still with each-other and are being affected by this very thing but are not separated..

Don’t you think that our words define us..no one can judge or estimate us unless we are not with words. Though when words are spoken, then half of the action is also taken the place. Actions speaks louder than words though but if our words effect others and ourselves then for sure your actions are half done.

Then its not of any usage how much you love your wife you hate your wife ,you care for your wife or you give damn to her. UNDERSTAND THAT HUMAN PSYCHOLOGY IS VERY COMPLICATED..There are always reasons behind our acts and words.feelings????? habits?? psychological compositions?????? environmental and genetic dispositions ?????

Taking an honest look at your relationship will help you decide if you are behaving like an oppressor—and how to break out of this habit.

Let’s be honest: abusing husbands may seem heroic on the surface, but what’s the real reward for your such act? If you’re noticed, people may…call you a martyr. Is that worth the potential cost of destroying your relationship? More important, is behaving like a martyr worthy of you? If you adopt this style, you may not realize something crucial: You could inadvertently abdicate responsibility for your happiness. When you behave like that, you give your power away, including the power to solve your own problems and to learn new ways of responding to your emotions of anger, fear, depression, shame, guilt, or embarrassment. This can make you feel helpless.

As a psychologist I usually tell my clients that

In the practice of counseling professionals usually see the why’s of such behaviors..

Its important for you to find out that is it something that you need some professional help for or you can really be a smart person to practice self-control strategies..psychologists when don’t see results..usually say…

so????????

usually we don’t want to lose our relationships until and unless the relations going to hell…

Emotional abuse can be more insidious and elusive. In some cases, neither the abuser nor the victim are fully aware it’s happening.t involves a regular pattern of verbal offense, threatening, bullying, and constant criticism, as well as more subtle tactics like intimidation, shaming and manipulation. Emotional abuse is used to control and dominate the other person, and quite often it occurs because the abuser has childhood wounds and insecurities they haven’t dealt with — perhaps as a result of being abused themselves.

They didn’t learn healthy coping mechanisms or how to have positive, healthy relationships. Instead, they feel angry, hurt, fearful and powerless.
Male and female abusers tend to have high rates of personality disorders including borderline personality disorder(BPD), narcissistic personality disorder(NPD), and antisocial personality disorder(ASPD). Although emotional abuse doesn’t always lead to physical abuse, physical abuse is almost always preceded and accompanied by emotional abuse.

The stress of emotional abuse will eventually catch up with you in the form of illness, emotional trauma, depression, or anxiety. You simply can’t allow it to continue, even if it means ending the relationship. A licensed counselor who is trained in abusive relationships can help you navigate the pain and fears of leaving the relationship and work with you to rebuild your self-esteem. It is possible if the abuser deeply desires to change and recognizes his or her abusive patterns and the damage caused by them. However, the learned behaviors and feelings of entitlement and privilege are very difficult to change. The abusers tend to enjoy the power they feel from emotional abuse, and as a result, a very low percentage of abusers can turn themselves around.

Make amends.Accept responsibility and recognize that abuse is a choice.Identify the patterns of controlling behavior you are using.Talk to trusted friends and family or a counselor about what you are going through. Get away as an abusive person as often as possible, and spend time with those who love and support you. This support system will help you feel less alone and isolated while you still contend with yourself.

Develop an exit plan. No one can remain in an emotionally abusive relationship forever. If finances or children or some other valid reason prevents you from leaving now, develop a plan for leaving as soon as possible. Begin saving money, looking for a place to live, or planning for divorce if necessary so you can feel more in control and empowered…but…:(

Emotional abuse is a form of brain-washing that slowly erodes the victim’s sense of self-worth, security, and trust in themselves and others. In many ways, it is more detrimental than physical abuse because it slowly disintegrates one’s sense of self and personal value. It cuts to the core of your essential being, which can create lifelong psychological scars and emotional pain.The sad thing is that your whole life is affected while everything changes in your partner’s.

My advise-let go. Detach yourself from such behaviors.. Even if it means letting go of your high bloated ego. Put yourself first and just let go. Dont try to manipulate your wife. Yet In fact, growing up.. she emotionally abused by you to such an extent that she still bear the marks today. But by looking for the strength within you let go. Good ridden, Dont harden your heart and move on.. Even if it means letting go of your emotional manipulation.whatever the reason they were with. Put yourself first and just let go. Do not manipulate her again in a similar manner.

Don’t let your wife wonder that why why she is so stuck on someone who hates her and verbally abuses her. The effect of verbal aggression is greater than the expression of love.

last thing to say….

Self love or selfishness 

Sometimes when people hear the word “self-love” they associate it with the word “selfish,” but I’m here today to tell you that self-love is not selfish. Self-love is empowering and inspiring. It’s something we should all do every single day. Loving yourself doesn’t — and shouldn’t — take away from loving others, as being selfish does. Self-love allows you to embrace who you are and, as a result, be come better at loving not only yourself but others.

While self-love can be defined as an excess in self-pride, I prefer to think of it in terms of a feeling of self-respect and self-worth. I believe the more you respect yourself, the more you respect the world around you and the more likely you’ll be to live a positive life, therefore projecting positivity into the world. Of course, there will always be those that argue that self-love is narcissistic and that loving oneself too much is just plain selfish. 

Having respect for yourself leads you to have respect for others. Ever wonder why some people are so mean and judgmental? More often than not it’s because they don’t love themselves and are taking out the way they feel about themselves on others. If you want to live selflessly, loving yourself first is a great place to start because the more you learn to respect and love yourself, the more you will love and respect others, which, ultimately, makes the world a much better place.

Celebrating positive things about you supports a positive attitude about others. The more you value yourself and celebrate the good things about yourself, the more you will want to celebrate the goodness in others. When you are constantly looking down on yourself or focusing on the negative, it can be really difficult to find the positive in the world and in those around you. If you bring yourself up, you’ll be much happier — and more likely to bring others up as well.

Taking care of your happiness first leaves your heart open to caring for others. Putting yourself first might seem like the absolute wrong way to care about other people, but it’s the best step you can take to making sure those around you are at their happiest. Once your happiness is taken care of and you really learn to love yourself, you free up your emotional time and energy to love others and focus on them. Dwelling on self-doubt and self-hate significantly takes away from others so loving yourself is essential if you want to have the energy to care for other people in your life.

Believing in your own abilities allows you to pursue passions that can inspire others. Once you truly start believing in yourself and focusing on your positive qualities, you’ll be able to pursue your passions and spend time doing what you love. When you allow yourself to be who you are and follow your heart, you will be able to share your passion with the world. The more you believe in yourself, the more you will open up and share with others — and what you share just might be the very inspiration someone else needs.  

 Loving yourself makes you a happier, kinder, more positive person. The basic truth is this: if you love yourself, you be happier. When you are happier, you will be nicer and kinder and more open to others. You’ll be more loving and more willing to trust, enjoy, and celebrate other people. You’ll look for the good in yourself and in others and, as a result, you’ll have a better relationship with yourself and with the ones you love.
 
Though some might disagree, I firmly believe that loving yourself is an unselfish act because it leads to a more positive life for you — and the more positive your life is, the more positive you’ll be about the things and people around you. It’s easy to find excuses when it comes to doing something good for yourself. You can think of plenty of reasons why you should be doing something for someone else instead. But don’t let that little nagging voice in your head tell you that self-love isn’t worth it or its unobtainable. It’s possible for every single person to love him/herself, but it’s up to the individual to make it happen. If you aren’t already loving yourself and you have any doubts in your mind as to whether or not loving yourself is selfish, I hope this article has helped you realize that self-love is, in fact, an unselfish act.

Core beliefs 

Negativity affects your thoughts, how you see the world. Nothing is ever good, nothing will ever be good. The world is going to Hell in a hand basket. The thing is it doesn’t just affect you, it affects everyone around you. People stop paying attention, and start avoiding you, because negativity wears on everyone around you.

“Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time. One or the other must dominate. It is your responsibility to make sure that positive emotions constitute the dominating influence of your mind.” — Napoleon Hill
If someone is diagnosed with any disorder, then same strategies more or less cannot be applied.. There is a great difference between clinical depression and depression.. your situational autopsy can get you into high gear fast if you are willing to examine and confront your own self related core beliefs. Which are sometimes totally irrational. Such beliefs can reside in our heads for so long that they may have become facts to us. Well, irrational beliefs, as we say are those that are actually inflexible, illogical and inconsistent with actual reality. As a psychologist I know that they tend to interfere with your psychological well being and get in the way of you pursuing meaningful goals. When your world feels like its falling apart, you are going to believe the bad ones more. So as a positive thinker you must challenge such myths rather than accept them as FACTS. you can  always check your positivity by checking self on reality check substances.. Like I don’t deserve a second chance to change my life for the better. No one would love me if I did all that only  I wanted. I am not quite confident about self to try something new with my life….

My point is positive thinkers promote productivity and creativity they support positive relationships. They have the ability for acceptance and tolerance. They know how to strengthen persistence and self discipline.. etc..

Patients have to use medicine and obviously cognitive behavioral therapies  and some strategies focusing on  on here and now, only then  they can someway get to the point of setting a forward looking goals. And with priorities straight way..
