Free to be Me


“When it feels like my partner is never pleased with me, or how I do things I sometimes just want to get away – be free. I don’t really want to be free from my relationship or my partner, I want to be free from this feeling, this dread that maybe I’ll never be enough and that I’m not okay. That’s what I get away from. I want to stop feeling this tightness. I don’t know how to stop feeling it,  but I do know how to get away from it, get distracted or do something that I feel good about.

I want there to be more me in our we.”

About Michael

I have been told I have a tendency to withdraw in my relationship with my partner. I'm what they call an "avoidant" in psychobabble. My relationship has been struggling, but I want to find a way to make it work.
