A Man’s Perspective June 24, 2009

Posted by occhristiancounseling in classes, Dr. Debi Smith, Stories.

You don’t say much. You don’t know what to say. You wish she’d just let it go, but she never does for long. You told her you were sorry. What more does she want?

Every time she brings up the subject, you go silent … or leave the room. You try your best to stay calm and hope it will just blow over. You take it for as long as you can, but sometimes you lose it and yell back at her.

You hate to say mean things, but it’s the only way you can get her to stop. So you dread coming home from work. You can’t find a way around it. So you spend a lot of time golfing with your buddies … or zoned out in front of the TV or computer.

You feel criticized, attacked, confused, alone.

You used to feel so close to her … safe. You miss that. You’re losing hope of getting it back.
