Is Therapy Ruining Your Relationships? | Psychology Today

Not Everyone Will Like the New You

Remember, you went into therapy to improve your life. In that process, you may discover that some of your relationships are unhealthy. Once you become aware of unhealthy dynamics, it becomes harder to tolerate them.

As your point of view changes, so does your outlook on your friends. You start to confront them about their unhealthy behavior or poor treatment of you. They shrug you off, grow defensive, or accuse you of being too sensitive. They may even try to discourage you from continuing in therapy. They don’t like the changes in you, because you’re disrupting the status quo.
