My husband doesn't tell me how he feels. I finally got him to tell me last night why he has been acting weird lately. He said he has been really depressed lately about things like his job (doesn't make much money), his weight (about 80 lbs over weight) and a few other things. I have problems with depression and didn't realize how bad I had been making him depressed and felt like he couldn't share it with me because he didn't want to make it harder on me.
While I am working on my depression, I've been sitting here wondering what I can do to maybe ease his or help him out of it. There is no way he would go talk to someone, he just isn't that kind of guy. What kind of things could I do that might help? We talked last night, I told him that I was proud of him and told him why, that I liked the fact that he loves where he works and would rather him be happy with his job than making a bunch of money. I thanked him for sharing with me and told him that I hope he feels like he can do it again, when he needs to.
So, what kind of things could I do that might help him, even just to feel better about himself. I appreciate your suggestions.
