If that’s the case, I know how heartbreaking and frustrating it can be. He’s not wired to communicate like you are. He’s not programmed to do all the overthinking and soul-searching that you do, and he doesn’t necessarily know and understand himself in the way that you do.
He’s been told his whole life that all he has to do is be strong and tough. So he doesn’t necessarily know what to do when you cry or when you start telling him about your feelings. These emotions may make him so uncomfortable that all he knows how to do is to run or to shut down.
