Struggling breadwinner wife
Answered 2 years ago
I find life so challenging. I know I shouldn’t be complaining. I have a job. I have family. I have shelter. BUT I am unhappy. I work long hours. I come home and have to do everything and when my kids go to bed at 8pm, I then work again till 11pm and get up at 5am and then repeat the cycle. I think to myself this can’t be life, the ONE life you have to live?! My SO really only helps with the toddler every now and then whenever he isn’t hanging with his gym mates. Doesn’t contribute financially or in any other way (cooks occasionally) and doesn’t satisfy me emotionally at all. Last night I was so exhausted but had a lot of work issues I was thinking of, so I tossed and turned twice and the SO got up sighed and tutted before storming out of the bedroom. I thought to myself what in the World?! Why couldn’t he just ask “what’s wrong are u ok?” Does anyone else feel like this?
Have an answer?
Cut down your hours and tell him he needs a job
Just a thought, maybe he could be feeling let down because he can’t provide for his family? Maybe he can’t comfort you because he knows the stress he’s putting you through?
I know, as dumb as this sounds majority of the time this is how men are thinking 🤦🏽♀️
