It's challenging when your partner feels overwhelmed by your life issues, especially when they're beyond your control. First, recognize that their reaction doesn't diminish the validity of your struggles. Open communication is crucial. Talk to your partner about how their reaction affects you, expressing both your hurt feelings and your understanding of their overwhelm. Validate their feelings while also asserting your own needs. Consider seeking support from a therapist together to navigate this challenging dynamic. Additionally, explore self-care practices to manage your own emotions and seek support from friends or loved ones who can offer understanding and empathy.
