Your guy out of work? If he’s withdrawing from you..You’re not alone.
To us guy’s..so much of our identity is tied to work. When we lose our gig, there’s a sense of failure that treads into our minds. Even with a two income household, much of the time, it’s not even about the money. It’s about self-worth. When the job is going well, we feel appreciation but when we get shown the door, it’s a huge blow to the self-esteem. The longer it takes to find a job, self-loathing begins and many of us will start pulling back from our relationships. If I were in this boat, I would need encouragement more than ever. A guy still wants to know his value as a man isn’t just based on a paycheck. Tell him that and tell him often!
Are YOU going through this?
