Supportive, Yet Frustrated

Q: Recently Allana, my husband lost his job and I’ve been supportive; however, I’m also working full time and I’n helping support our family and lately, he has become resentful that I am working and he is not. He is incredibly sensitive that I can’t even make a casual joke without him making it about himself. How do I remain supportive but not be made to feel guilty that I am a working woman.

A: Believe it or not, I sense this is a two way street.  I sense he is feeling more and more shame, more and more embarrassment, and lack of worthiness.  He is in reaction mode. I also feel that there is an opportunity for you to be more sensitive as yes, you made a normal casual joke but things aren’t normal right now.
