Hey DarthDefault,

I’m very much the same way and it’s caused a lot of stress in my marriage. I think it’s important to have open conversations with her and simply say “how can I help?”, “what do you need?”, “how can I support you?” etc.

Additionally try to listen and understand where she’s coming from without trying to fix/solve everything. I tend to approach my spouse’s problems like I’m putting a bandage on it and checking it off of my to-do list, but that isn’t really supportive and not what a lot of people are looking for.
