Chapter 3: Addressing Feelings
“When are we gonna spend time together? I barely see you, Tone.” I followed my husband upstairs with our baby on my hip, it was clear he wasn’t listening to me. Any other day I would’ve tolerated this, but I was fed up. It seemed like nothing mattered to him anymore, including me. There was a time when I loved the way he lied to me, I accepted it, I accepted the fact that he tried. There was a time when I loved the way he ignored me, it gave me a chance to hide my insecurities. There was always a time when I was sure that he loved me, until now.
I felt my insecurities arise as I watched him go into our bedroom and close the door in my face. “Would you please just listen to me?” I opened the door slowly.
“I don’t wanna listen Ameena. I want you to leave me alone.”
