For real? Your husband said that? That’s messed up. Crying is NOT “unnecessary.” That’s his problem if he feels uncomfortable with you crying. I’m so sorry he said that and now you feel like you can’t even cry around him. It frustrates him? Why on earth would his partner crying frustrate him? Does he not have empathy? I don’t mean to knock him, but that’s not okay to be treated like that. I saw in another post above that at home you get called stupid and are told to shut up. Is that your husband, too? *hug*
Yeah, sometimes I don't understand him - he can be very sweet but he does seem to lack empathy for those he cannot understand. There's a lot of behaviours of his that I don't understand and would consider "unnecessary" but I know that to say that is to illegitimise his feelings and I understand that we all experience life differently so nothing could be truly "unnecessary".

That was him too, during lockdown I think more than anything as he was stressed so more angry and I was stressed so more mopey. Sometimes we clash a bit like that :( Thank you for replying though

Ah okay, just wondered if it was a snippet from a song I knew of but obviously not. The Wishbone thing... I guess I like the idea of something good coming from something broken.
