Confused girl

Hello. i'v been with my boyfriend for 14 months and i love him deeply, more than anything in the world, and he loves me too. he's everything i ever wanted.


for the past few weeks I've been very angry, very stressed, very forgetful of things and just tired from school and work. he understands that but it took a toll on our relationship and i would end up saying stuff without thinking. i dunno whats wrong with me. i feel different but my love for him hasn't and it never did. but he just snapped from my attitude saying, lately i feel like you wanna own me and not love me, and your being angry and burning everything around you. and because i know this, i wanna get away from you and hearing my boyfriend talk like this broke my heart.

i don't wanna hurt him. i love him and i know he loves me. as much as i miss him i don't wanna make him feel like this. i cant live with that. what should i do please help me?

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
