Have you wondered why you feel so bad? Do you think your marriage is making
Depression can make you feel tired, and like you are living under a dark
cloud. You have no interest in activities and have dark thoughts about
yourself and others.
As a psychologically-trained divorce attorney and mediator, I hear from
depressed spouses all the time. There are a lot of causes of depression
but lack of power and abuse in a marriage can certainly cause depression.
Some signs of an unhappy marriage range from minimizing each other’s
feelings, having no sex, feeling neglected and powerless, and no longer
having any fun together.
When a toxic relationship develops in a marriage the depressed spouse starts
to feel insecure, helpless, scared, and anxious.
Here are 4 reasons your marriage is making you depressed:
1. Your partner tells you what to do
Your spouse thinks he/she is your boss.
Depression stems from feeling like
you have insufficient power. Being told what to do by your spouse can make you feel like a slave.
It makes you feel small and insignificant.
2. You feel dominated
Depression happens when you feel smaller and less powerful than your spouse.
Being dominated by your spouse can shatter your self-esteem. Being dominated
takes your dignity and makes you feel powerless.
3. You feel criticized
“I don’t like how you look in that dress.” “Your
hair looks terrible.” Criticisms are put downs meant to diminish
you. Constant criticisms make you start thinking something is wrong with
you. You start to believe what you are being told. A brainwash moves over you.
4. You are abused
Any form of abuse can cause depression. Abuse steals your soul and leaves
you empty. A partner’s constant criticism, control, and condescending
comments wear you down slowly and kills your joy. This is no longer a
loving relationship. It is a prison.
