There’s tension in your household. At times, family events are nothing short of uncomfortable or tense.
It feels like no matter what anyone says, there’s an argument.
Your family doesn’t feel close; while ‘closeness’ may not be something you’re aiming for, you would like to be able to all be in the same room together without an explosion.
Regardless of the effort, it feels like you all can’t get along.
If this sounds like your household dynamic, you could benefit from family therapy.
Living in a situation that feels like you’re walking on eggshells is exhausting. It feels like there’s constant tension over everything. Or, sometimes worse, there’s tension over nothing. When you hear other people talk about their families, it sounds like the opposite of your family. You find yourself wondering, y’all spend time together? You can be around each other and have decent interactions? None of you feel like you’re on edge when you’re in the same room? Holding this comparison in your mind is exhausting. But, you’re not out of luck. Starting family therapy can help calm the madness.
