I had spent the better part of two years feeling invisible in my own marriage and house. He’d rather do anything other than spend time with me. He had completely stopped helping me around the house, and he couldn’t be bothered to spend time with the kids or show me any kind of affection. Anytime I asked, it just ended up with us in a screaming match, him storming off and disappearing for hours, and me crying in my bedroom. You helped me break that whole pattern and come at things from a totally different angle. It took a lot of humility at first, but I forced myself to do what you said and the effect was almost instantaneous. I had no idea he was feeling as unloved and miserable as I was. We are rebuilding something that will be stronger than ever. It was such a low time in my life, Deb, but you were a saving grace to me.
