Collaborate without boundaries

Day 12 - done

  • Comments 3

Today went by quite smooth. We hardly spoke but at least there was something small that I had the opportunity to give into for her. I hope this was noticed as it really wasn't anything major.

Luckily no fights although she gave one jab again but I bit my tongue as it was a very sensitive matter and something that played a huge role in past fights that she would never consider and now all of a sudden it is viable...

I didn't react much to it though so I would say today was a win.

God bless you all.

  • Those days where it is a win are so nice. Let these days lead you to Christ's joy and peace. And when she verbally beats you up, remember you can turn to Him and He can turn even these tough days into a win.  Into a day of Christ's joy.

  • I is crazy how their thinking becomes the opposite of what it use to be.  I wonder if they just don't know what's going on in their heads or if they are just doing things to get under our skin.  'Probably both.  Keep biting your tongue as you did.

  • You'll often look back at days where you "fought" and not even be able to recall what started the fight in the first place. But you'll be able to remember that the day went peacefully. It's a much better feeling.

    It's natural to defend yourself when you feel attacked. You learn to control it as you get older. But I feel like when you get into a situation like we are now it's like our spouses have regressed into their teenaged selves. They will say mean and hurtful things. I say this because right now it's what my wife does when she feels the need to make me look worse than she thinks she is looking at the time. It's not the grown up thing to do. My children also do the same thing. When I'm trying to parent them they says things to me like "What do you know? You can't even keep your marriage together." It's hurtful and that's what they intended but later they regret it. And I'm sure our spouses do to after they have time to think about it.

    "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love."

    Ephesians 4:2
