Wife feeling "empty" Need advice!
I contacted Dr. Ellen Kreidman nearly 2 years ago. I was troubled about my marriage and was worried it was over. At the time, I was married 18 years. I was not a bad husband (no drinking, smoking, drugs, etc). I was not abusive. However, once married life took over, I took things for granted and my wife felt unappreciated over the course of time.
Understand, I NEVER stopped loving her, I just didn’t show it the way I did when we were younger. She brought it to my attention several times, and I guess I was kind of listening. Finally, she told me again and cried and she said she felt empty inside and didn’t think she has anymore to give.
Well, it been almost two years since I incorporated Dr. Ellens techniques, and I must say I’ve changed at least 80%. However, she is still having trouble “giving” in the relationship. She says she now cries nearly every day because she feels she is hurting me by not be able to give. She says she still feels empty and does not want to hurt me anymore.
I do not want to give up on this. I love her, and she still loves me very much.
Any advice on how to help her/us???
