my DH is a fairly negative and unhappy person most of the time. when we talked a week ago it really became clear to me he hasn't a clue about how to *BE* happy. he has no idea what one needs to cultivate in one's life. he keep focusing over and over on other people and situations outside himself.
i told him if people can find meaning and purpose in their lives in a concentration camp, he surely could in his life. (see "man's search for meaning" if you don't know what i am referencing)
when i spoke about gratitude, helping others, creation, accepting and loving oneself, he poo-pooed me.
i am interested in other's take on this. do you have suggestions, websites, books, other bits of wisdom? when i say something he ignores me, when he reads it or sees it online it's totally different.
