I'm really struggling with feeling my wife respects me or my decisions. It has been a very long standing problem of our marriage. But I felt if I didn't do what my wife wanted she would stop loving me, or hound me till I do what she wants. She can be a little strong with her will. Today she asked me to go to a Doctor Joe Dispenza conference with her. I said "Honey I love you, but that is not for me.". Over the years, I sat, I listened, I even regularly engaged her about mediumship and meditating, because it's important to her. But in my heart I know it's not for me. I choose my path to healing is through God, therapy, EMS Online, reading, and talking to men like me. But she tells me I'm not doing whatever it takes and I have to try everything and I'm being closed minded and she doesn't feel like she will be safe with me unless I go do this with her. I feel like my decision is not respected, or me as a person in general. (That’s a long standing issue) If I say "Yes I'll go to the conference" to avoid conflict and reduce rejection, then I'm living to please my wife instead of enjoying her. I then build resentment, which always gets me in trouble later. Am I being closed minded? I'm asking that with humble sincerity.
