#104: How Can I Be More Empathetic To My Wife?

Season #4

Byran's Question: "After listening to the "How do I break my walls down and trust him again" episode I would like to ask a question... In mine and my wife's situation I am the one who broke trust with her, obviously, but I would like some "pointers" on how to remain empathetic and steady. I am not very good with handling "rejection", and I know that I can come off really douchie toward her when, for example, I ask her to be intimate and she says no... then I ask her "why" and she gets upset because I'm not respecting her boundary... I do love my wife very much and I want to make sure that I am doing everything in my power to make her feel loved and respected but I am having a hard time with this aspect. I would love to speak with you guys if you can help in any way..."
