What To Do When Your Wife Is Depressed And Anxious

When your wife is depressed and/or anxious, it can be hard to know what to do to help her.

Today I have a special guest, Lizzie Langston.

She is an LDS postpartum coach, helping women overcome depression and anxiety that often follows having a baby.

We discuss how we as husbands can help our wives as they struggle with depression and anxiety.

You can find Lizzie on her website or her instagram, @LizzieLangston.

Highlights:

-Don’t take responsibility for your wife’s depression or anxiety

-Don’t try to “fix” her depression or anxiety

-Physically being there, even without saying anything, is very helpful to her

-Make sure to be managing your own self-care well

-Make getting help not a big deal, as she likely feels like a burden and doesn’t want to be a financial burden

-Model getting help by getting help or coaching for yourself

P.S. The Strong Man System opens up again on Friday, November 27th – Monday, November 30th. Give your family the gift of a strong and loving leader in their home. There’s nothing more meaningful you could do for them.

How To Be More Confident

To be a strong and loving leader of your home, you need to be confident.

Confidence feels great, feels strong, and is ATTRACTIVE to your wife and others.

But, how do you become more confident?

There are 3 main steps:

1. Be someone who can be relied on. A man of your word. Keep the promises you make.

This includes saying “no” more than you say “yes” so that your “yes” is more valuable.

2. Realize your INHERENT value that does NOT change as a son of God.

3. Recognize and build up your gifts and abilities, and use them in SERVICE of others… instead of COMPARING yourself to others.

How To Be More Manly

What does it mean to be a real man?

I’ve been trying to answer that question my whole life.

This week, we’ll look at two examples.

One is the type of man we want to be (Nephi)…

The other is the type of man we do NOT want to be (Laman and Lemuel).

Summary:

-Faith vs Fear. COMMITTING to a result BEFORE knowing all the “how.”

-Persistence vs Giving Up

-Asking For Help vs Not

-Gratitude vs Complaining

-Trying to change your situation vs Trying to change yourself

What Does God Think About You?

When it comes to creating a strong, joyful and intimate marriage, there are 3 relationships that need to be built.

1. God’s relationship with you/your relationship with God

2. Your relationship with yourself

3. Your relationship with your wife

Today we’re going to examine God’s relationship with you… meaning…

What are God’s thoughts and feelings about you?

If you feel like you’re trying to earn God’s approval (and the approval of others)…

And avoid His disapproval (or disapproval of others)…

This episode will be LIFE CHANGING for you.

The 3 Levels Of Sex In Marriage

Do you wish you had a better sex life with your wife?

Do you have a hard time bringing up sex with your wife…

Or does she often say “no” or “I’m too tired” when you do finally ask?

In this episode, you’ll learn WHY your sexual advances are unattractive to your wife…

And how to make them much MORE attractive…

And likely to get a “yes.”

Summary:

-There are 3 levels of sex in marriage

-Physical – orgasm-focused

-Emotional – validation-focused

-Rational – knowledge-focused

-When you are on level 1 or 2, your wife knows you are trying to USE her through sex (which is why she says “no”)

-When you are on level 3, your wife and you know that it’s about deep CONNECTION (which is why she will say “yes”)

How Calling Your Wife Out Can HELP Your Marriage

Did you know what your wife WANTS you to call her out?

Maybe not consciously, but unconsciously, she wants you to show STRENGTH and LEADERSHIP in your marriage.

And that means, when it’s appropriate, calling out her inappropriate behavior (in a strong and loving way)…

DISAGREEING with her at times (in a strong and loving way)…

And passing other “strength tests” she throws your way.

(You’ll learn what a few of more of them are in this video or podcast).

Like any strength building, it’s uncomfortable at first…

But leads to BIG benefits later.

You’ll have to ABANDON the mantra “happy wife happy life…”

Because it requires DISCOMFORT for her and you to set boundaries in this way.

And start to believe the mantra “strong is sexy.”

Spiritual, mental, emotional, physical and sexual strength.

We started learning HOW to build that up.

And how to become an EXPERT at communication, conflict management and intimacy.

What Is Success In Marriage?

You think it’s…

Good sex. Being appreciated. Being valued. Being loved.

And, a successful marriage does include ALL of those things.

BUT…

Your wife CAN NOT give those to you.

These things MUST come from something DEEPER and more SOLID than your wife’s words and actions.

And you CAN feel those things… even WITHOUT your wife.

You can feel full, valued, loved and appreciated.

Learn how in this episode.
