When my husband is going through a lot of stress or struggling with sin, especially porn, he tends to get critical of me. He makes some demeaning or critical comments. When I confront him, he denies or tries to make me believe nothing is going on and I’m exaggerating.
The last few days some comments have come out of his mouth and he’s been short with me, tense and it doesn’t take much to get him angry. The other day he apologized for being an ogre.
Please pray that God will convict him and that he will recognize that he that he has a negative, selfish, critical attitude and that his heart is wrong before God and that he will repent.
If his negative and critical spirit continues when he gets home, I’m going to tell him he’s being critical and that if he has something specific to say, please do so, but stop with the critical and negative comments.
In the past when I’ve said something to him, he denies it and withdrawals and silent for a while. He wants respect, but when he acts critical and negative, it’s hurtful and I find it hard to respect him.
We are supposed to have dinner with friends on Saturday night. I don’t want to have to pretend everything is swell and fine when it’s not. Thanks for your prayers.
