Consulting Exit Opportunities

Any advice on how to support (emotionally) an unemployed spouse? I’m also unemployed, and spouse feels I make it about me when I try to be encouraging or uplifting.

Really sorry to hear about your tough situation. Perhaps give the person space to come to grips with it and let him/her know that you’re there for the person if he/she needs you. That way, you don’t come across as self-centered or over-bearing. Sorry can’t be of much more help based on the information you’ve provided.

How about planning the solution together. For me when I see the solution - no matter how faint - it encourages me to keep moving.

Be supportive by showing physical closeness, affection, and reassurance. Ask how you can help. 🧸

Instead of being encouraging and uplifting, sometimes it’s just better to be there for them. Some people don’t want advice, they want compassion and care. Just being there and going for a jog, baking cookies, dancing to no music is encouragement in itself. We all want a partner who is a partner, not a motivational speaker. I’ve been through this and came out with this as a great perspective

One thing I hate most is the term “fat trimming”. These are real people with families, car payment, and issues that are suddenly losing income. It’s just business but those are real people not “fat”.
