Q&A: My new girlfriend comes from a really bad family…
Please help me!
I don't know what to do and really hope that maybe you can guide me?
For years I have been following your emails, but now it is my time to reach out and ask for help and I am sure that you have a good take on this situation.
Here it goes:
I have a new girlfriend and she comes from a really bad family with drinking issues and lots of neglect. I love her more than anything and she's really the love of my life but she has absolutely no faith in herself.
She doesn't believe me when I tell her how wonderful she is and how much I look forward to her being my bride and the mother of my children.
Can I do anything to help her?
She's open to therapy, either alone or with me so we can make things better and get the things we want in life.
She also knows that I'm writing you.
Q&A: My new girlfriend comes from a really bad family...
You already have your answer.
She needs therapy, help, support and love.
I recommend that she get in touch with a metacognitive psychologist to help her, so that she can start living her life and get her quality of life up:
It is so great that you to discuss things so openly. This will help make your relationship strong on the long run.
I also encourage you both to do this together every night:
Each of you buy a notebook and place them on your nightstands.
Then write something you did that day that was good for one another. This fosters awareness for people with low self-esteem who often forget to look at all good things they do in their daily lives.
Many Caring thoughts,
