A Safe Space For His Heart

Talk To Me-Anita Baker


He struggled with Emotional Honesty. Being supportive is often a challenge that I’m still learning how to finesse. I said “Baby, tell me what you need.” His default response has always been “I’m good.” I’m left shut out. No matter how much I try to assure him that he doesn’t have to carry the load alone, he still keeps so much inside. I try not to push too hard but I worry so much about him. .

I admire him so much for his strength and perseverance through adversity. I allow him to know that every chance I get, but I know men do cry in the dark. I asked him to put down his cape sometimes. He is under so much pressure. While I love him fiercely, I recognize that’s not always enough. I wish he’d talk to me and release what has him in pain. He knows I’ll never let him fall though.

I suppose when he’s ready, he will allow me the chance to lead him to the peace he deserves and that I want so much for him. While I feel his pain, I wish I could say I already knew what to provide. I’m still learning to understand him. I trust that we’ll get it right and the balance will come.

You don’t ever have to carry the emotional burden alone Baby, I got you
