I love my wife, but lately she’s developed a negative attitude. In recent years, we have experienced a number of personal disappointments and family tragedy. Things seem to have finally reached a calm, but my wife has turned into a total cynic. Her negativity is draining the life out of me. What can I say or do to help turn this situation around? Please do not suggest counseling; she won’t go. Samuel
I love my wife although seldom say it. IMPORTANT: I show it by the many small things I do!!! Get her pills set up for her with water, in the AM and PM. Give her flowers on holidays and birthdays. Give her room, i.e., with her bad back she watches TV and reads a lot. I spend my time on the computer upstairs, or watch another TV program in a different room if I don’t like her choice. Always kiss each other good night before going to sleep – even if it’s 1 AM. Sid
There was a song written in my teenage years that applies to your wife’s problem. Its title is “Accentuate the Positive.” I remember only a few lines. “You’ve got to accentuate the Positive – latch on to the Affirmative and don’t mess with Mr. In-Between.” Another song sung by Rosemary Clooney is titled “Count Your Blessings.” It seems to me that if she makes a list, “Blessings” will always even out.
