When you can’t help
Problems will arise in your man’s life that you can’t help. They might be related to health, to his job, to his family or his friendships and you’re just not the person who holds the tools to fix it. It’s an ego-deflator but recognize when a guy needs his friends, or his family, or his dog or whomever, it’s best to let him seek their counsel. Again, he’ll respect that you were secure enough in yourself to give him his space, and not take it personally.
