Depressed and spousal love:

Anyone on here that suffers from depression: is it hard for you to believe your spouse/partner loves you even when they say it and show you? What's that like? Trying to understand my husband. Did you have any support elsewhere that made you not believe in your spouse's love for you?

Yep, although I have one huge reason for this. In that my depression was finally set off by the fact my husband decided to meet some girl in a hotel. He then proceeded to tell me that he didn’t know if he wanted to be with me anymore. So I can completely back up why I feel the way I do.

I think that may be hard to accept when you don't like yourself. Try positive , happy thoughts! XXX

I agree with anxiety_59. I know my husband loves me but on a bad day when I am alone and my mind is racing I start questioning it for no valid reason. I think that it has to do with how a value myself and I have to try and think happy thoughts.

Yes it’s hard for me to believe my husband loves me. I know he does but I say he doesn’t know how bc I need him to show me in ways like helping me and not so much hugs and kisses but he needs more physical. Is it you having a hard time believing you or him believing you?

Him believing me. This makes sense because he has yet ti feel his worth. Just trying to understand him and see if there's anyway I can help.

It's hard to believe someone loves you when you don't love your self. I always useto feel my hubby settled for me more than loved me.
