Validation from husband

When I make comments or share things I’m upset about, I need my husband to show me he supports me and has heard what I’ve said. This is part of a healthy relationship. If he can’t support me there’s no point in sharing the situations as it’s not a match want. I can share with girlfriends who enjoy hearing my stuff and respond in a way that makes the conversation enjoyable for both of us. Am I correct in this coaching principle? I’ve been sharing with others who respond in a way I prefer and not him.
