What do you wish your spouse knew about how you feel inside? What do you wish you could say without your spouse becoming defensive, so that he/she understood you? This is the process we’re going through with couples as we prepare for the Calm Couples™ Marriage Challenge. I would like your feedback. Do not reply on Facebook! Post below this blog using a fake name so you can remain anonymous.
Here are some of the responses we have received so far. In parenting sessions, I like to give voice to what your children are feeling inside, but don’t know how to say. Through the Calm Couples™ Challenge and mentoring, I am going to give voice to the true feelings inside men and women. What do you want your spouse to know? Do any of these resonate?
What do you want your spouse to know about how you feel now?
I am scared because I don’t even like you or know you now.
I can’t trust you right now.
I have a lot of pain inside I need to work through.
I am mad at myself for letting things get this way.
I am angry at myself for being a weak person and letting you do this to me.
When I am with you, I can’t be myself. I shut down.
I wish you wouldn’t assume the worst about me. I AM trying.
I have so much anxiety and guilt. I feel trapped.
I need help. I cannot do this alone. I don’t want to do this alone.
I feel like your drinking/video games are more important than me.
I wish you would choose your family over your addiction.
I really want to be your husband and for you to be my wife, not just the mother of our kids.
I miss having a friend to share life with.
We’re just going through the motions. My eyes and mind are beginning to wander and that scares me.
