Dear Amudim Family,
In the best of circumstances, marriages take work and a solid foundation to succeed. When they begin with past issues that haven’t been dealt with, it is a sure formula for painful challenges. But with awareness and a willingness to work on rebuilding, something that started off broken can be repaired and healed.
After talking to a friend who told her about Amudim, Dina* reached out seeking guidance in working on herself and her marriage based on problems arising from years of unresolved trauma.
Dina had a rough childhood; her parents constantly fought and she was both physically and emotionally abused. When she turned 19, Dina was pressured to start dating and got married just a few months later, without having dealt with the pain she’d experienced or the negative relationship model that was the only one she’d ever known.
Her marriage was difficult from the start; Dina shared that her husband had some similarities to her parents such as being rude, pushy and domineering, and she felt miserable and alone. Thankfully, with her friend’s support, Dina worked up the courage to speak with her husband and called us after they decided together that they needed both individual therapy and marital counseling and wanted to work on healing themselves and their relationship.
We have remained in contact with Dina, and thank G-d, both she and her husband are doing extremely well. They are both still in therapy and making healthy strides in healing their personal lives as well as their relationship.
If you or someone you know is struggling, contact us anytime.
