I’m married for 34 years to someone who treats me well most of the time. But there are weeks, such as now, when he considers me evil. This time it was because we were cooking dinner together and I asked him to turn on the stove – and he turned to me and shouted that I didn’t need to tell him what to do. Now he hasn’t spoken to me for 4 days. I’m the evil person who needs to be punished. Writing this and reading it, it sounds so weird. But in a couple of days, he’ll decide I’m okay again and all will be ok. Only this time, it doesn’t feel ok to me. I’m not willing to accept this any longer.
