My husband and I had a little chat the other night. We don’t do that too often. He said that I didn’t contribute much to the conversation. I replied that I’m more of a listener, and that I tried to talk some too. I’ve never been very good at conversation with him. He always says that we’ve been together for years and I should be good at it by now. I’m better at making conversation with my parents and sister, as long as its not about mental health. Nothing too serious.
I don’t know why I can’t make conversation with my hubby. I wish I could to his satisfaction. Another thing he says sometimes is that we have nothing in common. We have a lot of different interests but we also suffer from some of the same things – depression, anxiety, social anxiety. So we understand each other pretty well in those areas I think.
Do you have communication problems like this? How do you handle it? I don’t think I’ll ever be able to have a conversation to his approval. Thanks for listening. Till next time,
