It might be the era of Feminism, but women still have to suffer inequality. As your wife, she’ll come to you with her problems. The worst thing you could do to her is push her away.
There might be times when you have no clue why your wife is upset. And it might look as if she is falling apart, but she is stronger than that. You both have started a life together, and it’s up to you to make the most of it. Here are a few things you can do to make her feel better or reset her:
- Hold her: A hug is the best medicine for sadness. If she isn’t responding to any of your suggestions, hug her. She’ll feel safe in your arms and might start opening up to you. Women who hold things inside need someone to hold them. Hold her until she lets go it will help her open up to you.
- Be a good listener and console her: If she has finally come around and wants to share her frustrations, hear her out. It might seem like an inconsequential thing to you, but if it has affected her so much let her speak. Try to understand what she wants to tell you. Women are straightforward, and they’ll tell you everything, you have to listen. She might start crying when you hold her or when she speaks, don’t let her go, keep holding her.
- Pamper her: Plan a special day for her. Plan things that she doesn’t have to do. You could book her a Spa appointment, a Mani-pedi session, a new haircut, or new clothes. Or you could pamper her at home. You could order in, draw a scented bath for her, and let her enjoy it. Give her a little space to drink it all in. When she comes back from the spa, don’t forget to compliment her.
As the husband you should be able to discern when something is not right with your wife. At the moment you will need to be intentional, she will always remember when you were there to help reset her. Sometimes we have to reset our phones or computers when they have been running for too long, your wife is the same way. Allow her some time to power off so when she comes back, she will be at 100% and will be the best wife she can be.
