My partner and I have struggled through some very hard times. During that time, I had turned to alcohol as a means to mask my own frustration, fear, self-doubt, and anger. I also became very impatient, inconsiderate, and less mindful of how my words might affect us. She made a decision to leave, even though I made decisions to put myself back onto the right path. We’ve both never loved anyone as much as each other. But it is clear we are now struggling as a couple. We need some help hearing our hearts and speaking to each other.
