Sometimes our emotions get the better of us. That can happen a lot when your partner has cancer. It doesn’t have to be that way when you understand what an emotion is, where it comes from, and how to handle it so you can be in charge instead of at the effect of your emotions.
Sometimes we are happy when his is sad. Or vice versa. It can feel very unsettling, especially when one person is fighting cancer. Self judgement and “acting” happy are not the answer. You can be honest with yourself and your partner about how you feel.
