You are a Mirror — What Do You Reflect? - Strong Women, Strong Love
If you were a mirror reflecting back to your husband who he is, what would he see? Would he be bathed in a flattering glow — or would his reflection look more like a Photoshopped image distorting his worst features? It’s not something we think about much, but spouses are mirrors to each other — we look to each other for feedback about ourselves. Psychologist Dr. David Wexler notes many men fear looking in the mirror and seeing a highly flawed reflection. For your husband, you are the most potent mirror, so feedback from you has the emotional capacity to build him up or injure him deeply. He may fear looking in the mirror and seeing that you are unhappy with him or view him as weak and incapable. Your importance in his life is why he might seem quick to bristle at any criticism from you.
