So, I've been having a struggle with this, recently, and it's making me feel awful about who I am.
I'm usually a very empathetic person: I am very quick to help others in need, usually out of a sincere concern for them, and when folks I know or don't know are very sick, or in dire straits, I feel for them sincerely. I am often touched by the prayer requests of others.
My wife is pregnant, and she deals with our 2 kids an awful lot. She is often quite tired, and for the last couple of days has been feeling sick, as well. For some reason, I am completely numb to it, and honestly get annoyed when she complains about it or acts under the weather. I love my wife, and we have a generally very good relationship, but this is putting a wedge between us. I should be caring for her, but it's like I don't believe her, even though intellectually, I do...
Any thoughts on this?
Mostly, pray for me, a sinner.
