Q – My husband interrupts me and cuts me off when I am talking; he raises his voice at me, and often hurts my feelings.
What advice can you give me?
A - I’m proud of you for reaching out for help and I thank you for your question.
You do not deserve to be talked at loudly, yelled at, interrupted, or belittled!!! That is not a happy or healthy marriage!
Have you talked to your husband and asked him to not interrupt you? Have you asked him not to raise his voice at you? Do you think things can get better?
Know that it is rude and disrespectful of your husband to raise his voice at you, yell at you, and belittle you enough to hurt your feelings. He has some anger issues and really could benefit from learning how to treat a lady.
You cannot control or change his actions. You can only make changes to your own actions and thoughts. You can love yourself and not let his 'poor' behavior control your happiness. You have three choices…1) love yourself and give him more love; 2) allow him to continue what he is doing and you will be sad and unhappy; 3) leave this abusive man.
I suggest you focus on loving yourself and making yourself happy. You will find a list of positive affirmations here that you should read (and believe) one every day. Think about that one affirmation all day. Practice one a day for the next 30 days.
Try giving your husband a compliment every day. Tell him how much you appreciate him. Thank him when he does things to help or provide for you.
If you are ever in danger, call 911 immediately!
I understand your pain and I’m sorry you’ve been hurt by the person that is supposed to love you the most. Pray for God to touch your husband’s heart and you be the best person you can be!
Hope this is helpful!
