Today's dare is something I have been working on over the last few months. I have lived most of my life with no regard for if I hurt your feeling or not. If it popped in my head, it came out my mouth, especially when I was angry.Now after I calmed down, I regretted the harsh words that I said. That didn't really work too well and I allowed my anger and words to hurt the woman I love. It took her to pack her stuff and leave for me to get that reality check. Now, I was really sweet and loving to her until she and I would argue. We would both throw daggers at one another and see who could hurt one another the worst.
My "Rules of Engagement" are:
1.Never raise my voice. Speak with a soft voice.
2. Be kind and patient.
3.Listen, don't just wait to attack
4.Be willing to compromise
5. Show respect
6.Resolve the issue, don't allow it to linger.
I was unsure if I should do this one alone or let Court know. I did text her and told her those six things, so that she knows that I will no longer get into a knock down drag out with her.The Lord is working in me and my friends and family are noticing and beginning to tell me that I have changed. Thank you God.
Jason. Looks like you are going great.... But now let me make you aware of something... This will help you keep to those "Rules". Now that you have sent them over and she knows about them. If you do not adhere to them, you will give her more ammo to throw it in your face. She will think it is a con. So with that said. Make sure you do it. Because she will hold it against you. And when she gets mad, and you do not respond with anger, she will intentionally try to push your buttons. Satan will use her to push it... So always remember God saying, BE STILL... FOR I AM GOD. If you are still, he will handle her. Great Job...
