What Women Don’t Say

I do not know what a normal relationship looks like. I do know all relationships need constant effort; touching hands, kissing good morning, good night, hugging at the sink and everywhere else, saying “Have I told you today I love you?” and telling everyone I have the best wife/husband in the world. Not of course if the wife/husband is physically or emotionally abusive. Both men and women can be abusive and drive their partner to drink/eat/drugs/the arms of someone else. A lot of men, traditionally, do not vent their feelings, but I believe women clam up just as much. I just have not seen it in my relationships (which aren’t that many.) As for “love”, I wish I could recognize it when I see it. I feel like I must make my own by saying it, affirming it, actioning it, even when I’m sad, depressed, discouraged and not feeling it. Sometimes I feel like I may be saying it too much for her to believe it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
