Speak up when something’s bothering you
Secrets and Lies Dec 6, 2018
Admit it: you’ve said the words, “It’s fine” when your husband asked you if everything was all right. Chalk it up to wanting to keep the peace or the fact that women have trouble speaking up in uncomfortable situations, either way you don’t want to sweep relationship issues under the carpet and let any resentment fester.
Your husband isn’t a mind reader. If something is bothering you, it’s best to speak up and tell him what it is, especially if it’s about something that he’s done.
If you just need a sympathetic ear, let him know that. If you need him to offer advice or maybe even an apology, let him know that too. Clear communication is essential to every relationship and it’s the glue that holds a marriage together.
