One of the things I pride myself in is being the best husband possible. This means doing things to help make Robyn’s job easier and try to make sure she has everything she could ever want and need. Most of the time I feel I do a very good job of this.
Occasionally however this is not possible. And that is just human nature. But it does not mean it makes me feel any less disappointed when it’s not possible.
The area I most often fall short in my eyes is when she is going through tough times emotionally. As we all know, females moods can change at a moments notice. And she tells me all the time how she does not think I have feelings and emotions, so it makes it all the more difficult for me to assist with those times.
Recently she has been going through a tough time while on the liquid diet portion from her recent weight loss surgery. The surgery is known to occasionally cause emotional roller coasters in some patients, and eating fewer calories can also do the same. So combine those with the fact that she is ready to be done with the liquid diet and she can naturally have a negative outlook at times.
When this occurs, no matter how hard I try, it never seems I have the right words to resolve the issue. I know she does not always expect me to have all the right answers and resolve everything, but I expect myself to. So when it does not happen I feel bad.
Luckily those times don’t happen often most of the time, but maybe it’s just one of those areas of life where I should just accept the fact I’m never going to be perfect!
