I think the best piece of advice I would have to give to another spouse is to—even though a lot of the time your instinct is to hold in what you are feeling and to not share that something might be hurting you to your significant other because you don’t want them to feel bad—it’s really important not to do that. It is really important to be able to communicate with them what you’re feeling and then maybe, you never know, they might be able to feel like they can communicate what they’re feeling to you. Because a lot of the times I found that he’s not telling me something he’s feeling because he doesn’t want to make me feel bad, and I’m also doing the same thing. But we’re in this together, so if we can’t talk to each other about it, we can’t talk to anybody about it. And, really being able to communicate and be open with each other about what’s going on in our hearts and in our minds is what’s going to help you through that time more than anything else. So, just be open with each other.
