Things are pretty bad. You can't sleep because of how awful you feel.
Your relationship is in shambles. You can't figure out how to turn it around. You can't figure out how you guys got here.
You used to be happy. You used to spend every second with each other and it was never enough.
Now you can barely talk. Everything turns into a fight. They don't understand you. You don't get why they are acting like this.
You're stuck in this cycle. You're stuck fighting about the same stuff over and over.
If only they'd change. If only they'd be nicer. If only you guys had better communication, you know you could be happy again.
So here you are are. You're on your phone right now looking for ways to fix your relationship.
I know that feeling you have right now.
You're desperate for things to change. You just want something to tell you that you aren't crazy.
You want something to tell you how you can be happy again.
You want to feel understood. You just want someone to get it. Someone to help you get things back on track.
If it's the middle of the night and you're reading this, I just want you to know you aren't alone. I see you and feel your pain. I'm sorry things are like this right now. Keep holding on. Keep pushing through. Your relationship can get better.
