OMG! I saw this and was floored. Is this what I’ve been doing to my man all these years. I’m always treating him like a 14 year old child, inept and useless and NEVER doing things right. But is HE really at fault? Or am I just unloading all my crap and insecurities onto his broad shoulders? Oh I feel so bad. I’m going to have to stop. He’s a strong, capable man who just so happens to not be good at certain things that really don’t and shouldn’t matter. So what. There are so many things he can do that I can’t (or shouldn’t). I need to learn to love him at face value, quit nagging and harping on him for those things he’s not so good at, and love him because he is WHO he is, not what he can do. How would I feel if the roles were changed? Not very good, that’s for sure.
NOTE: The original source for this on Reddit has been deleted, and I’ve seen a few iterations after performing a Google search. But they’re all pretty much the same.
