My husband left, saying he was unhappy. He said he wants me to move on because he no longer loves me. He came back and for several months told me he loved me, but then he said he didn't. What if I have already let him know I want to reconnect, but he says he doesn’t want to and that it’s over for him?

I once received a letter from a mom asking how she could help her daughter navigate feelings of anxiety. The daughter would take her feelings out on whatever family member was closest to her. The mom had pre-taught her daughter that those actions were inappropriate and worked with her to find better alternatives, but it wasn’t working.
I'm having a hard time knowing what to think and how to react. Yesterday I saw on the TV that my husband had been watching a sleazy and despicable show. It surprised me because he tells me he doesn't like filth and thinks it's cheap to add unnecessary nudity (which to me, it's never necessary), yet he's watching a show that is basically dressed up porn. I'm confused about who he says he is and what entertainment he chooses.
Motherhood can feel like participating in a race without a finish line: slow at times, frantic at others, exhausting and exhilarating all at once. No matter your circumstances, Heavenly Father promises blessings as you participate in this essential work of salvation. See the Church's new video honoring motherhood.
I tried to tell you what it would be to be a mother, but one generation’s language will always fail in trying to explain the enormity and nuance of their experience, so there are some things you have to learn that we cannot say. It is not that we will not say, but cannot. We cannot take you where we have been. You must come and learn for yourself on a trail you have never blazed before.
