Boyfriend does not consider me a priority

Asked by Female, 27, In relationship
My boyfriend does not consider me a priority. We hardly spend any quality time anymore after getting busy with our own careers. I have no interest in life. I think I'm undergoing depression.

Hi Writer, thank you for writing in. It takes great courage to reach out for help.

It seems that you are facing difficulty in your relationship with respect to managing and spending quality time with each other. You understand that both of you are career oriented and this must take up a lot of time and energy for the both of you, leaving both of you tired and exhausted by the end of the day. It bothers you to feel that you are no more a priority in his life. I understand that it must be a difficult position for you to be in.

Firstly, I would appreciate the courage in you for being able to manage so far.
Could you tell me when did the problems start? What according to you started these issues?
What have you done about it so far?
Also, could you tell me a little bit more about yourself and your boyfriend as individuals? What makes you think you might be slipping into depression?
Answering these questions would enable me to help you better.

Secondly, how would you like me to help you with your situation? What is it that you are hoping to seek through this counselling process?

Please respond back to continue our discussion. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Warm regards.
