How can I stop my girlfriend from breaking down whenever we come to at all stressful topics?
She says there are some problems that might be in the way of our relationship.
The last "problem" kept her from talking to me for a year about anything more than what she did that day.
It seemed like a menial issue when she finally told me, and after we had talked about it briefly, she started telling me everything again, we were the closest we had been in a long time.
I thought she was ready to tackle anything that stopped our relationship from being the best it can, especially since she told me we could talk about the other problems whenever. I guess I should have asked her to talk about it then, but I thought she had enough stress going through the first one.
Later, when I asked if she wanted to talk about them, she broke down again. She's sitting with her head on the table now, and she will barely respond to me.
What should I do? Please, any advice is much appreciated.
Should I seek help with some stress management thing?
