I did not get to complete this dare with my spouse because he has moved out of our home. I am thankful for the Love Dare because God is showing me how to love according to his word. I have learned to set boundaries with my husband.....especially when he tries to start a fight. I have been empowered by Christ to recognize strife and stop it in it's track before it manifests. My personal rules are to:
Not mention divorce when I am angry or we are fighting.
Confront my own issues and not take my issues out on him.
Respect my husband wishes especially when he says he doesn't want to talk.
Speak to my husband gently and with respect.
I am thankful for each day that God blesses me to complete a dare. I am blessed to join this community and pray that God would continue to be with you during this process.
Could you not have called by phone and started a conversation? Not all dares have to be in person.
