Ladies, I had a breakthrough with my boyfriend and I am so proud. I have encouraged him to go to therapy for years. He grew up with a father who is emotionally abusive. He felt like he didn’t need to go because he could just “handle it” (part of the toxic culture he was raised in) so I stopped pushing. Yesterday he told me he was going to therapy to try it out, I said okay, and made him a coffee to go. He came home, hugged me, cried, and read me a list of things he was working on. 🥺💛

He said he loved me (our first time saying it!) and he had a list of things he was sorry about. “I’m sorry I don’t help you enough” “I’m sorry you try to support me and I shut you down” etc. This was one session! I’m so happy for him and that he eventually decided on his own to go.

So glad he’s getting the support he needs and he has someone like you to encourage him!

Thank you!! So many men refuse to get help, I’m glad he could rise above that status quo.

Aw thank you so much! I hope the best for you and your lover 💕 It took us awhile to get there, definitely not an overnight thing. It’s a hard sell for a guy to not only go to therapy but to embrace it.

This is beautiful

Thank you!! ☺️💕

Hey Guys, Slightly an off topic question. I along with my wife and kid are planning to move to Bangalore and looking for rentals in Hebbal Kempapura. Would be great if anyone staying in this area could suggest some good apartments complexes.

As an immigrant, I’m grateful for the opportunities afforded to me since moving to the USA. But, I must say, it still doesn’t feel like home after a decade. I still cannot wrap my mind around the gun culture, lack of universal healthcare and emphasis on education (critical thinking). I’m planning to leave in the coming year or so. COVID really made me realize that life is indeed short.

How do you deal with a boyfriend who is going through a rough time career wise? I've recently achieved some career milestones - things are going well for me. The opposite can be said for my boyfriend. I told him this week would be busy and I couldn't spend time with him and he's pouting and throwing a tantrum like a big baby. It's a huge turn off. Any suggestions on how to handle? He's normally pretty supportive so this recent outburst is surprising.
