I don’t typically like speaking what’s on my mind to my wife

I usually have a hard time speaking about what’s on my mind.

I stress about things and I feel like if I talk about those things, I only will feel more stress.

Like the HVAC system for example, we haven’t had the money to replace the HVAC system yet and we keep having to cover the cost for these costly repairs whenever the HVAC breaks down. Of course, we make room in the budget to get regular tune-ups and maintenance, but it’s only becoming more pricey as the system becomes older. The system is actually going on 14 years now and I imagine it won’t be much longer before we can’t use this HVAC system anymore. My wife always says I should tell her what’s on my mind, but I know that if I start talking about the HVAC we can’t afford to have replaced, it’s only going to start an argument between us. She’ll ask me why I’m not working more overtime hours to be able to afford something like that. Or she’ll tell me to quit going to the bar to go drinking with my buddies. I feel things like that are necessary because you have to be able to let loose sometimes to help relieve the stress you are feeling from life. I probably would work more overtime hours, but just being at work and busting my butt is already stressful enough so it would be tough to stay there for much longer than I have to. I don’t know what the solution is, maybe I should just go looking for a better paying career.
