I will be working on another book about couples and how we are revealed through these relationships, when I'm done touring for this book. I'm so looking forward to sharing those stories and what we can learn about ourselves from them!(less)

If he feels this way, you might suggest that there are many things he can try so that he doesn't have to suffer so much, only one of which is therapy. He can always go for a consultation, for which there's absolutely no downside. One of two things might happen: a) He discovers it's helpful and decides to go back or b) He doesn't find it helpful and he doesn't go back. But if he doesn't feel that he wants/needs help, well... people don't do well in therapy if they're going for somebody else's sake (i.e., yours).(less)

“We can’t have change without loss, which is why so often people say they want change but nonetheless stay exactly the same.”
Lori Gottlieb, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, Her Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed

“We tend to think that the future happens later, but we're creating it in our minds every day. When the present falls apart, so does the future we had associated with it. And having the future taken away is the mother of all plot twists.”
Lori Gottlieb, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, Her Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed

“But part of getting to know yourself is to unknow yourself—to let go of the limiting stories you’ve told yourself about who you are so that you aren’t trapped by them, so you can live your life and not the story you’ve been telling yourself about your life.”
Lori Gottlieb, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, Her Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed
