How many times in your marriage have you assumed your spouse knows what you want? Even after seven years of marriage, I still assume my husband knows my wants and needs, but that’s just not the case.

As much as we wish our spouses were mind-readers, often, they are clueless to our internal struggles. We wish they would just say “I know you’re hurting” but really they are wondering “I wonder what’s wrong with them.”

Sometimes, we have to open our mouths and say something in order to make sure that know.
