Sometimes she needs to know she isn’t messing everything up in her life.
Tell her you know she’s doing her level best as a wife and mother.
Sometimes she needs to remember who she was before.
Give her time to pursue a dream. She had them once. Probably still does.
Sometimes she needs to remember she’s still the woman with whom you fell in love.
Tell her she’s beautiful. Look at her like you did the first few months you fell in love. Take her away from all the mess. The stress.
Sometimes she needs a break.
A five minute shower doesn’t count. A day without hearing her name, making 1090 decisions in a one minute time frame, or half-drinking her coffee does.
Sometimes she needs to cry without judgment.
Your attempts to fix things or say “don’t worry” aren’t needed. Be there. Just be there.
Sometimes she just needs you.
