LISTEN TO THE SHOW:
How to Tell Someone They Hurt You
When your husband is harsh, thoughtless or downright mean, of course you want him to stop. If you’re anything like I was, you want him to feel embarrassed or ashamed so he won’t do that again!
And since he promised to love you in front of God and everybody, it stands to reason that letting him know how much he hurt you should be very persuasive in getting him to be more gentle, thoughtful and kind.
But if you’ve ever had the experience of your husband not even listening when you’re telling him how hurt you are or just telling you to stop being upset, it’s so frustrating! You can end up even more hurt than you were to begin with.
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast, we’re talking about how to tell someone they hurt you.

She’s going to share how she got there so you can do it too.
