Help, I feel stuck and lost! Mary Fenwick, columnist for Psychologies magazine, talks about this reader’s question:

I have been with my partner for four years, however we share a very different view about how we want life to turn out. He wants to move to Japan permanently, and I don't feel like this is for me. All of my family and friends live in the UK. I love him, I really do, and all of this is killing me on the inside. I don't want to leave my family behind, but I also can't stand the thought of us separating. I have suffered from depression for around 5 years, and this is really starting to take its toll on me. We currently live with his parents, the idea was so that we could save money to go to Japan, and I feel like they are forcing me to go with him, with only his best interests in mind. What about me? Where do my hopes and dreams fit in to all this? I am stuck, and I am lost.

*Mary won't be here on 5 or 12 February. See you all again on the 19th!
