Collaborate without boundaries

Day 1 - it begins

  • Comments 2

I had started the Love Dare before I happened across this site. I'm glad I came across this though so that I have a somewhat private place that I can journal and see how others have gone through their dares. Most of the communication between myself and my significant other is through text or through his mother. We have an apartment together with our almost 3 year old daughter but he has since moved out almost 2 weeks ago. He is now back at home with his family and I'm at the apartment while our daughter is being passed back and forth between us. Thankfully his parents have been more than understanding in our situation and have been praying for us nonstop. We have both been unfaithful towards each other in the past year, disrespectful, unappreciative, amongst other things and has caused a rift to grow in our relationship. I have no idea what it is I just agreed to do but I'm going to just leave it in God's hands and pray for the best. 

Day 1 was challenging for me. As we were discussing plans via text on who will have our daughter Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, he replied with a very ugly text telling me that I do not get to choose where she goes as I was the one who ruined everything (this is the censored version of the text). As much as I wanted to retaliate and tell him off, I told him we would discuss it further once his mother gets home to mediate. I was so hurt and angry but proud that I did not match anger with anger. Every time since then that he has something ugly to say, I'll either remain silent or just tell him okay. 

  • Welcome.  Realize this  will be  a journey b etween you and Christ, not you and him.  He will be used as a tool to mold you.  do a  dare a day, no more,  no less.  Do not  read ahead in the book, other than the appendix especially about leading the heart.  Have no expectations of him when doing the dares. Do not change the dare to make it easier.  Things may get worse before it gets better.  but this will serve purpose.  

  • As you do the dares, there will be one or two that  are designed for married couples only.  For those dares, seek a way to do them in a different manner.
