Im a newcomer to this group but Ive needed it for a long time!! My bf and I have been through so much (very sick daughter, family issues)...and stuck together through it all for 5 years, but our old (stupid) arguments always come up. Im in counseling but how can I describe my issues to my therapist when I dont see what Im doing wrong!!! We went to 1 counseling session together, and even though he admitted it helped us, hes not willing to do it again. The other day when we were talking, hes like "So you think I need counseling?"

Please PLEASE help, I need advice on how to talk to hime without him hetting offended.
