This one is for you. The man and the woman who’d die for each other but still somehow feel alone with everything. The couple gazing with adoring eyes in public and walking on eggshells at home. The two who feel so embarrassed trying to talk about what hurts because it’s not that there’s anything wrong, exactly... I mean, life is good and all... you love each other... you really are blessed. These things shouldn’t get to you. You know better. You’re both trying. He doesn’t want to hurt her feelings. She doesn’t want to make him feel bad. They’ve been through so much for each other. They’ve weathered the storms. She feels like she must be such a burden to him. And he can’t bear to see her cry.
Comparatively speaking, their marriage is so much happier and healthier and stronger than most. They see this and recognize this and rejoice in this almost every day. So why does he feel like he can’t do anything right? How come she still cries herself to sleep without letting him know? Why are you reading these words in dead silence, afraid to look at your partner in case you see the resonance in each other’s eyes?
