What would you insert there? It’s a great thing to know you are able to open up to your spouse and tell them what you are feeling, thinking, dealing with or something that could potentially pose an issue, and have them respond in a way that demonstrates love.

Do you need to step back and think about how you feel and how you want to respond? Reacting on your initial knee jerk thoughts can prevent healthy communication.
