How do you guys deal with your SO's when they're stressed/angry/irritable?
My boyfriend has been going through a hard bout of unemployment and some days there is just no getting out of his funk. I TOTALLY understand and respect his emotions, but I don't always know how to react. I'm trying really hard to stay positive, but sometimes I get so empathetic and tend to take on some of his grumpiness, which does no good.
Any suggestions? Anecdotes? I just get so sad when he's sad...
