firstluvstruck Posted May 26, 2017 Share Posted May 26, 2017 A friend of mine is in a relationship with someone who has some issues with jealousy and anxiety that he's trying to fix but are not going away. The relationship is new. She likes him and says he's a very kind person deep down but is not changing his unhealthy habits or behavior. He is doing the things to change (therapy, doing activities with her) but not actually showing change. Despite her showing him he cares and telling him not to worry he continues to be jealous of nothing. Other issues are not handling stress well and not cutting out stressors like caffeine, smoking. I don't want her to keep investing and get hurt, to settle, or to face these issues 5 years down the line when it's too late to exit; I can't understand her point of view, so I'd like to ask this community if they've ever been with someone who they like and have tried to change for the better (ie, help them relax more and enjoy life, as well as trust you) but this person is not coming around. How long do you put up with it? She sounds fed up with a lot of it yet keeps seeing him...because he is kind and sincere and treats her well. Link to comment
