Day 27: Love encourages

  • Comments 3

Guard my soul and deliver me; do not let me be ashamed, for I take refuge in You.

—Psalm 25:20 TODAY’S DARE Eliminate the poison of unrealistic expectations in your home. Think of one area where your spouse has told you you’re expecting too much, and tell them you’re sorry for being so hard on them about it. Promise them you’ll seek to understand, and assure them of your unconditional love.

    I know in the past my wife has told me when she used to work full-time; 40-hours per week at a hospital from 1999 to 2006 that I expected her to do everything at home at our apartment and now that I am unemployed and she is on social security disability; I still find myself thinking she can take care of everything from the cleaning of the apartment to taking care of most of the bills. I need to seek to understand this puts a lot of stress on my wife and I need to seek to understand her emotions a lot better and listen to her; if someone has said something that has upset my wife and to assure my wife that no matter how upset she gets with me that I will still love her unconditionally; no matter what the circumstances are.

  • Day 27, every day has been difficult. Little to no contact. I read my daily dares but MOST of them are difficult to do since we no longer live together and he won't talk to me, and he has a new "friend" in his life. So I pray and pray. I have been doing a rosary every night since last Monday (day 16) when he told me he was done and to move on with my life, but I still try and pray. Looking for advice...please.

  • This is my 1st time posting on here. I am really struggling with this Love Dare. My husband doesn't know I am doing the Dare. I am just wanting to strengthen our marriage so we don't argue as much in front of the kids and build it back up to where our marriage was before kids. We have been married for 9 years. After today (Day 27), I'm not sure how many more apologies my husband will take from me. He told me he is tired of hearing me apologizing for everything and hasn't talked to me since then for the rest of the morning. I am really trying to stick with this and get to Day 40, but man it is hard. I have been doing my best each day and I am over half way there. I am trying to stay positive and don't want this to make our marriage worse. Please tell me this will get better!
