Helping Your Husband Be There For You When You're Upset
Updated: 6 days ago
Does your partner try to “fix” you when you're sad, or quickly tell you that it will all be okay, make a joke ( or even ignore you)–instead of holding you or sitting lovingly with you while you cry or spill it all out–like you want him to?
This is so common! So, if you don’t feel very emotionally supported by your partner when you are having a hard day or are upset–or if you wish he was more empathetic and caring during those times, this episode is for you! Being there for you when you are upset is NOT many men’s strong suit. Today I dive into WHY, so you can not just understand and have a lot more peace around his way of trying to support you, but so you can also help him be better at being there for you in a way that feels good to YOU (and him, too!) during the harder moments of life. Listen in to hear:
About the real brain differences that make the sensitive caring empathy we love hard for him
3 things to know and remember to feel more loved and supported when you're upset
The exact things to DO to encourage him to be better able to lovingly be there for you in the hard times.
(Keep in mind we aren’t talking today about when you’re upset at him–rather when you are upset about something else in life.) If you implement everything I suggest in this episode, you can say goodbye to feeling so dismissed, hurt, or uncared for by your husband when you are having a hard time–and BOTH start feeling like the harder times of life actually have the power to bring you closer as a couple.
