He is always trying to say kind words but thats not what I need right now. Am I just asking for too much?
If you expect him to be a mind reader, yes.

I don't think kind words is a bad thing. But if you are looking for a diffferent kind of support, tell him what that is, and ask if he can provide it. What is it you want?

A workout buddy? Help cooking? Shopping for groceries? Or something else?

And be prepared if this simply isn't an area where he shines at. Not everyone is good at everything or can give it. In that case, kind words isn't a bad thing.
