What I learned about my husband that helped me be a better mom.
Assumptions are not always correct. Accusations lead to defensiveness.
Going cold on our partners is often a sign not that we have stopped caring, but that we are – somewhere deep down – furious or hurt.
Do you and your partner have discussions that turn into arguments, with flaring tempers and, finally, calling each other names?
You, your partner, and hurt feelings. Nobody’s perfect, and sometimes we unintentionally, through words and action, cause our partners to feel hurt.
Swallow your pride. Take a deep breath. And say “I’m sorry.” Watch the ice melt before your eyes.
These days we are constantly hurting each other, usually inadvertently, with our texts.
Friendship breakups are hard! My friend couldn’t give me much of a reason as to why she didn’t want to be gal pals any longer.
When your feelings are hurt it’s time to turn inward and reflect, rather than lash out or run away. You can lovingly let your partner know you need to do this.
By voicing your needs, you become empowered.
What would change if she acknowledged you and said these words?
