Hi all, I'm lookin for some help in the relationship department if you can.
I'm currently in a 1.5 yr ldr with a type 3 girl (I'm a type 2 boy). We've always been really good at communicating and been very open with each other. Lately, her job has begun dominating her life, which is understandable for type 3s, but at the same time our relationship has been pushed to the side a little bit. Our normally open conversations have become plagued with frustrations/perceived resentment, not a good thing when communication in a ldr shuts down. I recently took a trip out to visit her, however because of work I only ended up seeing one or two days of a two week trip. She is concerned that taking anytime off will anger her coworkers and prevent her from advancing in the future.
My question is (and hopefully some threes out there can help out) how do I help her grow, as I'm pretty sure she has become unhealthy and is literally paralyzed by her desire for success. I'm trying to show her that I'm on her team, that its possible to successfully balance work with our relationship and want what's best of her/our relationship however my attempts are usually met with annoyance. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!!
