How do I stop projecting my personal expectations of myself onto my husband. I am a driven person, always feeling the need to be "doing something" whether work or play. My husband is more relaxed and laid back and does not feel the need to be busy every moment of the day. If he does not do what chore I ask him to do, when I ask, I get frustrated.He has recently retired on physical disability, and I get angry when he just sits around. He is a wonderful loving husband in every way, and I feel this is my issue - but don't know how to let him just be himself.View Thread
