This past week, I was very emotional and sad over a situation.
I went to HubbyHubby and cried and talked and talked and talked.
He immediately went into "solution mode" and started to help solve my problem.
I love him for trying to solve my situation, but what I needed was for him to listen.
When you need him to just listen and hold you, say just that: "Babe, I just need you to listen."
When you need a solution, ask him for one.
Tell him about your problem, ask him to listen and provide a solution--tomorrow. That way, he'll really be listening, and he'll feel excited to be on a mission to solve your problem. And you have an entire day without being bothered by him trying to solve your problem.
Be clear. Then, thank him for being your hero.
