Partner won''t see shrink

I''''ve been in a relationship with my partner for a couple of months now but already have broken up and made up more than I ever had to in my life due to petty things. But colleting all thoughts I think she has more baggage than I thought so I arranged for us to see a shrink (which she agreed to). Twice I had to cancel becuase she would start up an argument so not to have the sessions. I know I can''''t make her seek therapy if she''''s not ready to face own issues but this is affecting our relationship and I''''m getting tired of trying.

This is not a all promising - and that she pretended to agree, and let you waste money and time making appointments, then created a fuss to avoid facing the sessions, says she has no genuine intention of sorting things out. and intends to keep her baggage ( and she's probably only unpacked a little of it so far so there'd be more to come ). GOod idea to consider ending the relationship, wishing her well, and moving on

Thanks for the advise. Just what I''ve been thinking but didn''t want to just end this all without getting other''s views on this. I know there are people who are comfortable being in a challenging relationship like this one but I''m not for this. I have a lot of love to give and it''s just a pity. She unpacked some rather deep-rooted childhood trauma (which at times I don''t think they''re all true) but I think she did so to get my sympathy.

Thanks for the advise!

If she''s not willing to work on the relationship and her issues, and you''re tired of trying, why don''t you cut your losses and go?
