How do you feel about how I feel?
I wish I could always remember to say this when it’s really the question I want to know from my husband, Caleb.
Usually I ask, after pouring out my heart to him, “what do you think.” He then goes on to answer that question. What he thinks is full of wisdom and mature thinking. But that’s not the real question I wanted him to answer. I want to know how he feels about how I feel. When I ask the right question, he gives me a different response. One that for me, makes me feel more seen, heard and loved.
He usually says “I feel really sad for you that you’re feeling sad about that, it must be so hard to feel that way.”
WOW! Breakthrough! I no longer feel crazy about my emotions, but feel heard, seen and loved! When I feel heard, seen and loved in my life I can begin to again think about things rationally rather than out of a place of pain. But first, I need to be met on an emotional level. I need to be seen on that deep intimacy level. To be loved even in the midst of not processing everything perfectly. Can you relate at all?
