We ended our first session agreeing that we’d listen to each others requests a bit more
My wife and I needed to work on our communication skills. We were constantly fighting or choosing not to talk to each other at all. We decided to go to marriage counselling. I wasn’t too keen on the subject, but I knew it would help us in the long run. This allowed us to talk about things that were bothering us for most of the marriage. I, for one, was annoyed that I was the only one who cared about getting our Heating & Air Conditioning method serviced. I always say how we need to get our duct work done because we need to make sure we have proper air purification. This will improve the air quality, and that means a lot to me. My wife always says we can’t afford something like that. Her complaints were that I didn’t pay enough attention to her and that all I cared about was watching sports on TV with my friends. I didn’t think that was all I did, but I know my friends are always over watching sports with me. It’s not like my wife never spent time with her friends. Wit that, I didn’t see what was wrong with me spending time with my friends, and I made sure to say that in our counseling. We ended our first session agreeing that we’d listen to each others requests a bit more. This was good progress because I felt like this was our biggest fault. I was happy that afterwards she agreed to get the proper Heating & Air Conditioning service with an up-to-date air cleaner. She was just happy that I was giving her more attention!
