My Annoying Husband

Q: “Help – My husband drives me crazy! Despite my deep love for him, being married to him can sometimes be incredibly frustrating. When I feel like he’s not paying attention to me, my reactions can be quite intense, and he is often taken aback by the level of my upset. What can I do?” ~Lynn, Carlsbad CA

A: Thanks for the question, Lynn. Here are some thoughts that might help shed light on your experience.

Well, as you noted, you’re definitely experiencing some communication difficulties in your relationship. It’s not uncommon for people to react strongly when they feel ignored or neglected by their partner, and it’s important to address these feelings in a healthy way.

Step One: Understanding

First, try to understand why your husband may be ignoring you. It could be due to stress at work, fatigue, or simply because he’s preoccupied with something else. Don’t make assumptions or jump to conclusions, as this can only escalate the situation. Instead, try to have an open and honest conversation with him about how you’re feeling.

Step Two: Work on Yourself

It may also be helpful to work on improving your own communication skills. Let your husband know what you need from him and ask for his input on how you can both improve your communication. Try to listen to each other’s perspectives and find common ground.

Step Three: Therapy

In addition, consider seeking support from a couples counselor or therapist. They can help you both work through your issues and develop healthy coping strategies for when you feel upset.

Lynn, the most important thing to remember is: Relationships take effort from both partners and it’s important to approach your relationship with patience, empathy, and a willingness to grow and improve together.
