“I know it’s too late…I should have given you a reason to stay.” - Death Cab for Cutie
It’s Too Late
One of the mistakes that struggling couples make is that they focus so much on the things they need to fix that they forget what it is like to share their dreams about the future. Having those positive conversations together provides inspiration to keep working…which can be much more motivating that simply trying to make changes just because you feel obligated to.
Make sure that you and your partner discuss and continue to stay in touch with your reasons to stay together. Celebrate them…let them inspire you forward.
Starting Tuesday, May 5th: Is it time to recover the loving, adult closeness you so cherish? This multi-week seminar will get you going with practical and immediately useful information, tools, and weekly exercises designed to strengthen your affection and connections.
For those in marriages impacted by ADHD
You can find great resources for couples impacted by ADHD at my marriage and ADHD website, including: an online treatment overview; downloadable chapters of my books; a community forum with other couples facing similar issues; a large number of blog posts on various topics; referrals; and my very popular ADHD Effect In-Depth Couples' Seminar. This eight-session seminar has helped many couples turn around their relationship, and is given by phone, so anyone may participate. Next session begins Fall 2015.
