Things I wished my Husband noticed
Answered 6 months ago
I wish he noticed that I get up with him in the mornings, so I can make his lunch for work. I wish he noticed that I also do it so I can do a lot of the house work before the kids wake up.
I wish he noticed that I do other bits of housework in between home school (even before Covid-19) and I do that until the kids need lunch, so I make them lunch and then clean it up.
I wish he noticed that if I happen to be watching TV when he gets home, it's always while I'm folding the washing, because I am aware our three year olds toys are out. Even though he asks "Have you been watching TV all day"
I wish he noticed that I miss half of our TV show while I'm making dinner and I only tell him not to pause it because he's tired from work and deserves to sit there and watch it.
I wish he noticed that while I'm getting baths done, pyjamas on and the bedtime ritual done, he's still relaxing.
I wish he noticed that when we go to bed he always chooses what we watch. I wish he noticed how much it hurts that he pushes my hand away if I try and put it on him.
I wish he noticed how I've changed from a woman who used to jump up at the sound of her phone in case it was him, to someone who doesn't care if it is.
I wish he noticed that I used to ask him what time he'll be home because I missed him but now I don't really care.
I wish he noticed that he makes me feel unappreciated, unloved and ugly. I wish he cared that he does.
I wish he would notice when I put myself down.
I wish he would notice that I'm so unhappy.
I wish he would notice that I'm beginning to not care at all, I wish he would notice that the other part of me cares desperately.
I wish I didn't care. I wish I didn't care so much that I'm starting to not care at all.
Have an answer?
Maybe he is feeling the same
You two can turn it around. Unfortunately for all of us, the only person we can make do anything in this world is ourselves, which is you in this case. Try and talk to him, before telling him becomes telling him why you are walking out the door.
