"You just need to grow up!" "You shouldn't be so sensitive." "Just get over it!" Most of us have heard comments like these at some time in our lives. Unfortunately, these are the responses we often hear from those closest to us when we try to express our emotional needs. Many times, these are defensive responses we may-hear after we have tried to explain to someone that they have said or done something that has been emotionally hurtful to us.
For many, it is easy to assume that if there is not something physically wrong, everything is just fine. And if we complain about our emotional needs not being met, we are just whining, immature or selfish. Even in our most important relationships, it is all to easy to develop a habit of overlooking the emotional needs of the ones we love.
We can help you develop skills in listening and gaining new insight into those closest to you, as well as the skills you need to assert yourself in ways that can produce a positive result in your relationship. One of our licensed, experienced counselors can guide you through communicating, listening, encouraging and supporting one another in new ways so that your relationship can develop trust and grow stronger.
