When I come home I don’t speak. I instantly get aggravated when my spouse talks to me. They are shutting down because I didn’t have a great day and that sucks their energy away. My mind is racing on what I can do to be a better teacher. My mind is on how I could better assist my kids. I’m not even present in my own home.
My spouse is telling me about their day and I’m tuning out everything he is saying. I know that I need to be a better wife but I’m exhausted. When I come home, I still feel like I didn’t do enough and that might cost me my marriage to my loving husband.
