There I feel a bit better now…
I have been married to my wife for about 13 years. We love each other very much. However, there is something that is driving me crazy! My wife from the time I can remember seems to insist that she can read my mind and tell me what I am thinking. Time and again she puts words in my my mouth regarding how I am feeling emotionally. Take today. At least 5 times today she accused me of being angry at her when I was not, In looking back and reflecting, I never raised my voice or gave an angry look or anything. After awhile this gets to be mighty old, and then I do get angry, because I am tired of being told that I am upset at her when I am not. Then when I do get angry after having words stuffed in my mouth, it reinforces what her original thoughts were that I was upset at her in the first place.AHHHHHHH!!!
I am in a no win situation, no matter what I tell her she does not believe me when I tell her that I am not upset at her. It is like emotional blackmail. Tonight after we came home after a nice eveing out with our two small children, she insisted that I was very angry at her over a conversation that we had on the way home. We just disagreed with her on a topic. Being angry at her was the furthest thing from my mind. I finally told her that she was her own worst enemy, that she is the one that who brings the majority of emotional stess on herself. As a result I am in the dog house.
I am getting tired of this. Do any of you guys have the same problem, and what is the solution??? Ladies, any input from you would be greatly appreciated.
