Do you folks withhold information from your spouses? I usually don’t but I think I’ve got to stop oversharing with him. I can see the strain. I give him the complete picture all the time. Then I get busy because I’m dealing with the here and now. I’ve noticed that when he comes back, he’s exhausted and the worry from home isn’t helping at all. He isn’t able to easily compartmentalize. I’ve been asking myself what is the point in telling him everything? He’s not around and I’m mostly the primary care giver around here. Talking about everyday struggles with the child is something I want to cut back on. I used to offload and it felt good. He’s an understanding, empathetic and caring partner and an involved parent so it felt like I have a partner and I’m not alone in dealing with all this. I forgot that he doesn’t share it with anyone. He doesn’t have a stress release avenue and I’m increasingly worried about this. I make this strong resolve every week when I kiss him goodbye and as soon as he lands and calls me, I’ll give him a minute by minute update of what happened when and how. I’m tired of being such a blabber mouth. Help me friends to share only necessary information.
