Stop depending on your husband to increase your self-worth. You can’t rely on any person, activity, possession, or thing to make you feel good enough for your husband. You can’t expect your marriage to be a perpetual source of self-worth, security, or even love. Husbands are fallible, they make mistakes, and they change.
Criticism creates war or retreat on your partner's part. It increases stress for both of you and will cause your partner to feel overwhelmed. When I was being criticized, I felt frozen. Paralyzed. I just sat there and allowed myself to feel numb. It was the only way I knew to survive the hurtful words being thrown at me.
