For women like me, who were raised to be tough willed and bull headed…sometimes it’s really hard to let yourself be vulnerable, to let yourself feel.
For YEARS I have hid my feelings deep inside, dealing with my demons on my own….unwilling to let anyone see me as anything but tough and happy.
I’m over that shit.
It took quite a while for my wonderful husband to break down my walls and show me that being a “girl” in front of him was okay. I still try not to cry in front of him, but if I do…he knows just what to do to comfort me. I still try and hide being upset, but he sees right through it, and usually does something weird to make me laugh.
There aren’t a lot of people in this world that can comfort you by simply being by your side…but he does.
There aren’t a lot of people who try and understand your pain instead of just putting it off…but he does.
There certainly aren’t a lot of men who listen to their wives ramble about their girly drama…but he does.
There aren’t a lot of men who step back and take the time to teach their wives whatever it is they want to learn…but he does.
He never mocks all my questions and is always teaching me new things and building me up.
He has never once told me I couldn’t do something, and always encourages me to try.
He believes in me when I don’t.
He is my best friend and my partner for life.
You really are my other half, babe…and I’d be so lost in this world without you.
Love never fails.
