My Perception Is My Reality

My husband says he loves me - but I don't FEEL loved - I do feel NEEDED but not in a positive way - I don't want to have to "rescue" my spouse continually because he feels so bad about himself and is depressed much of the time.  And I am sure that my husband WANTS me physically - but that want needs to extend to friendship and companionship for me.

So, there isn't much to say actually - what I perceive is my reality and for me MY reality of my marriage is that  it is NOT good!
