I Hate My Wife’s Breast Reduction: Navigating Personal Emotions and Supporting Her Decision

Change can be a difficult thing for anyone. Changes out of our control can bring our lives to a complete standstill. All we can think about is this change. How it affects us, how we can handle it, and how we can move forward. The thing about change, however, is that it rarely affects only one person, but one person is where we focus all our concerns. This person is primarily known as “me.” Our relatives make decisions that have consequences for us, but that does not mean it is our place to change their minds or control what they do. It is a hard truth to learn, but most people have to learn it at some point.


Changing Your Perspective

Sometimes, it is easy to leave the “me” mentality behind; other times, we wrestle with this mindset all our lives. There is no surefire way to bring about this change in ourselves. A place to start may be by shifting your perspective. The thought process and reasoning behind these choices can be difficult to understand. Viewing things through the eyes of the person making the decision can help open a new way of thinking about the issue. If you have a spouse who has chosen to undergo a breast reduction, you may be wondering why she would make this choice. You may also be wondering how best to support her through it.


Why Women Choose Breast Reduction

Breast augmentation is not limited to creating a fuller, shapely figure. Many women elect to have breast augmentation to reduce the size of their breasts. Why would this be a good decision? On the surface level, it could be for the benefit of a more aesthetically pleasing, balanced appearance. Petite women with large chests may be the envy of others, but in reality, a chest too large for your frame can be awkward to dress, making clothes shopping an unwanted struggle. Women with large frames can also have an issue with breasts too big for their bodies. Often, there are health issues behind women wanting a breast reduction procedure. Some women have chronic back pain and other conditions caused by carrying an excess weight on their chest. When the pain becomes unbearable, or another shopping trip feels too strenuous for her mental health, a woman may wish to seek breast reduction surgery.


Supporting Her Decision 

Whatever the reason your wife has for pursuing breast augmentation, the best thing you can do as a husband is figure out how to work through your feelings while continuing to support your wife throughout her journey. Remembering that any change is difficult for everyone to navigate will help you keep an open mind and heart.
