You do everything you possible to make your husband happy, yet your hard work and efforts are left unnoticed at best, and criticized at worst?
“My husband doesn’t appreciate me at all“, you cry inside as you wash his laundry, make his favorite meals, iron his clothes, take care of your kids and probably have a job just like him.
My Husband Doesn’t Appreciate Me – Why?
Believe it or not, just because your husband treats you like a piece of furniture around the house, does NOT mean that he doesn’t love you or care about you anymore.
If you want to stop being taken for granted and get the attention, respect and love that you deserve, now is the time to take action.
Doing the same things over and over again, giving more and more and expecting that something will change is the definition of insanity.
Obviously trying harder is a road to nowhere.
How to Make Your Husband Appreciate You
Instead of trying to be the perfect wife and trying harder and harder to please him – which he doesn’t notice – try a direct method of communication:
1. Tell it Like it Is
I’ve learned this life-changing tip from couples therapist Randy Bennett:
Men NEED their woman to be direct and assertive.
For example, if he asks you where you want to go for dinner, don’t say “I don’t know, whatever you want” and then sulk at dinner because he chose pit BBQ and you wanted Italian.
Say “My preference tonight would be for Italian. What’s yours?”
This gives him something to work with, instead of thinking later what went wrong and why you are hardly eating or talking to him.
This is just an example, but it applies to everything. Men need to be told directly what’s expected from them.
Don’t ever wait for him to GUESS what you want and what you need from him. He will never guess and you will only get frustrated and angry.
