When she’s upset

How can he help her when the signs of an explosion surface amidst conversation? How can he help her when things start out sore and she can’t help herself?

*Ask her what the root of it is

*Ask her if she wants space before she demands it

*Ask her if “it’s worth it”

*Ask her if she’s fighting herself

*Tell her you love her with every piece of your being and that you two can get through anything together and surely can get through this if she tries

She knows she needs to hear these things, but can only think of them when she is calm. Deep down a little version of her is begging for help, for him to say these things.
