I definitely think you should bring this up with your partner, even if you wind up seeking validation elsewhere-- open communication is a good thing in relationships, and they might be better at the whole pep talk thing than you think. Even if their own brain weasels prevent them from being much help, I don't think that keeping your needs and problems secret is a sustainable way to go about a relationship.
