Your Partner's Emotions! Relationship Expert Dr. Molly Barrow

When a partner seems to be letting you down, ignoring you or responding angrily to the simplest request, do you think they do not care for you?

Take a look at yourself. How do you react when you are stressed, grieving or experiencing failure? Often we allow ourselves to be vulnerable and have all the excuses in the world why we are tired, late, absent or disinterested. However, sometimes, we use a different measure for our partner.

Because we have so much riding on our relationship, we make every response of our partner too important. If they are crabby, we feel unsettled and want to fix it. If they seem depressed, we imagine they are in love with someone else. If they are angry, we think they do not care. Certainly we must be on the lookout for cracks in the relationship, but hypervigilance can go too far.

Allow your partner to have human emotions, to not be madly in love every day and to feel the rise and fall of emotions created by everyday stress. Try to use a compassionate eye on your partner's behavior, as well as your own. When life gets rough, it is not easy to put on a happy face, especially with the one you love.
