Your husband still loves you. People can have opinions about each other. Is there an unwritten rule that we can't? If I were you, I'd try to not pin
everything on the differences between you and him.
...Or you and the world.
If you focus on similarities, you'll find more chances to not feel alone.
Besides, your husband's skepticism is completely healthy. What would you think of him if he believed things without supporting evidence? It's good
that he's like that.
I hope you can find a way to mend the wounds. I know it must hurt if you believe that somebody else hasn't fully understood you yet. But don't forget
it's hard to fully understand someone!!
Let me ask you. Do you fully understand your husband?
And if it helps you to cope, I think we all share some amount of delusion. Nobody knows everything. And we're all wrong about some things. Some people
might know more than others, but on grander scales of existence, we're ants. We're just as dumb as they when taken outside our element. So who cares
if one ant knows more about the world than another? Last I checked, nobody cares.
The clinical definition of delusion is easy to spot. Somebody might think they're Jesus Christ or they might not recognize they're on a road when
they're standing on one. HOwever, I'm referring more loosely to a definition like this: A mistaken or unfounded opinion or idea
. I've lost
count how many mistaken or unfounded opinions I've had over the years. I've been plenty delusional. And I have no doubt that many of my prejudices
will never budge even when proof is in front of me.
So from my perspective I'm delusional for life. There's no escape.
