The Key to Your Next Chapter

“We had been dating for a long time and were talking about getting married, but we both had some concerns that were hard to talk about.  We weren’t resolving them on our own.  We needed some help to make sure we were preparing ourselves with some great tools that would help us grow our relationship to where we wanted it to be."

"I love my wife and the new family she has let me become a part of, but I didn't realize how lonely the role of a step-parent would be. I feel like I'm disappointing my wife and in turn, my family. How am I supposed to find my place with the kids while being compared to the biological father? Does my voice really matter? I'm worried if this doesn't get easier, we won't make it."

"It feels like I have been planning my life as long as I can remember, but now after I have finally finished all I have set out to do things are not going according to plan.  All of my friends seem to find dating easy, many are getting married.  I’m worried there is something wrong with me."

"He was wonderful while we were dating, he changed overnight it feels...how did I allow someone to treat me the way he has, were there signs that I missed? I knew I wasn't crazy, but he made me doubt that at times. Now I feel so isolated and alone."

"We got married fairly young so we took our time before trying to have kids.  There was no way to know that we would have trouble getting pregnant.  I feel so broken from this process.   I just want my body to do what it is supposed to do.  Every month that it doesn’t happen, I sink deeper into the disappointment and I don’t know how to manage this pain."

"I was away on vacation with my husband when I got the news.  My mother, the matriarch of our family and my best friend had terminal cancer.  How could this be?  I just saw her two weeks ago!  She looked perfectly fine.  Why didn't she tell me she wasn't feeling well? My life has been turned upside down.  I now go from anger to uncontrollable crying in the span of sixty seconds.  I'm afraid I can't compose myself long enough to be present for my mom.  She needs me now more than ever." 

“I’ve always wanted to be a mother even though I was never sure about how I could make that happen. Growing up as a lesbian, I didn’t think I would be able to have a “traditional” family life. I know now there are various options for single women or women in same sex relationships to have a baby, and I am so grateful, but the process is scary and confusing.  I wish I knew I was making the right decisions.”

"I feel like all I do is work!  There never seems to be much time for friends, for a relationship or just me!  I thought working hard, achieving my goals and doing the right thing would prevent me from ever feeling this stressed, confused or empty.  Sure, the money is great, but I don’t even know if this career is what I want to be in anymore.  I’m considering talking to someone, but I feel embarrassed.  I’m supposed to be the one who always has it all together."

Blake has been getting out of bed more and more to sleep with us.  He says he is scared and has a hard time falling asleep. The dark and quietness of his room seem to send his mind racing.  He also recently mentioned things at school aren’t great and this week he’s had several stomach aches on the way there.  I reassure him and try to be as patient as possible, but maybe it’s time to get more help.  It’s hard seeing such a little person worry so much.
