Collaborate without boundaries

Day 53: Love fights fair

If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.

—Mark 3:25

 

TODAY’S DARE

Talk with your spouse about establishing healthy rules of engagement. If your mate is not ready for this, then write out your own personal rules to "fight" by.  Resolve to abide by them when the next disagreement occurs.

 

--I wish I could talk with MB regarding these rules.  She is just not at a point to talk (she just avoids my attempts to talk), let along talk about rules for talking.  My rules of engagement that I would promise would be:

  1. I will not bring up items from the past in attempt to make a point, hurt, or punish you.

  2. I will never “fight” in public or in front of our children.

  3. I will never go to bed angry with you and I will never let you go to bed angry.

  4. I will speak gently and keep my voice down.

  5. I will listen first before speaking.

  6. I will own my issues up-front.

  7. I will never touch you in a harmful way.

  8. I will never say divorce as part of my vocabulary.

  9. My attitude will always be: we will work this out; failure is not an option; whatever it takes.

  • As the dare says it's okay, it's good you didn't share the rules, yet did the dare.  Dare completed.
