Cry Baby

I am the new Lady in the neighborhood and I am ready to Whisper.
I have to warn you though..... I use lots of bold, italics, CAPS, and ellipses.
I have to.
Because I'm emotional.
And because I have got to LET IT OUT!!!!

Don't you just hate it when you are crying over something, and your significant other just sits there staring at you. You know.... Doing nothing at all??
That's right. No kiss. No hug. Nada.
Dontcha just hate that?.....
Or is it just me?

I realize that maybe my husband is just numb to my crying.
After all... We have been married for a little over five years.
Is that his ticket out of being a little sympathetic toward me?
Maybe it is, and I just don't know it.

To be fair to Mr. Knightly, I have to say that this doesn't happen ALL the time. Heaven forbid that I get that definitive. However, I will say that it happens more often than I would like it to. (Can you tell I've been to marriage counseling?)
Even if Mr. Knightly does have a ticket out of comforting me when I am crying, I know one thing.
It makes me feel alone even though he is sitting right in front of me.
And I shouldn't feel that way.
Because I'm married.

***Thanks to the Ladies of the Neighborhood for letting me join! I LOVE it here!!!***

Ohhhhh welcome. And yeah, that's never a good thing. I don't know if it's worse but it makes me just as angry when he tries to fix it and I just need him to listen. You know?

No one should have to cry alone if they don't want to. I don't think he's immune; I think he's just scared because he doesn't know how to fix it.

Men like to fix things. The smart ones eventually learn that we just want to them to listen and hold us when we cry.

So right with ya, girl! Mr. 6PackAbs does this alllll the time! But like the gals above mentioned, he is just frustrated that he wants to make it better & thinks he must fix all/ know all/ be all. Pft! Just hold me, dammit!

And WELCOME! you, with all your caps & italics! Write on, girl! Welcome to the 'hood!
