Out of order

You feel depressed.  Your spouse comes up to you and asks “what’s wrong?” and you look at her blankly, thinking, “Where do I even begin?” and walk away.

Sometimes you just don’t feel like talking about your feelings. 

And you don’t have to.

But you can still let her know you’re not up to sharing your feelings just now, keeping her in the loop so she does not feel redundant, confused and abandoned by you.

This is communication. 

You do not have to share your feelings.  But if you want to stay in relationship, let others know when you are temporarily unavailable.
