I have been married for 17 years and the last 10 have been the loneliest of my life. How do I stop feeling lonely in my marriage?
Being alone and lonely is difficult, but being lonely while living with another human is worse. It takes courage to tell the person whom you want to be seen by the most that you feel invisible.
Find a non-conflict moment to tell your husband how much you miss him and how much you miss what you used to have together. Ask him if he’d be willing to rewrite your story as a couple and get help to live out your life together differently. Yes, you may get an answer you don’t want to hear and lose the relationship, but as it is right now, you’ve already lost it. It takes courage to reach for happiness.
