The Anger in Marriage Struggle Is Real…but NOT Impossible.

Going to sleep in any emotional state is very difficult because sleep is a time for your mind to rest and reset. Do not cheat your body and mind out of time to improve.  Do not allow anger to cause a divide between a relationship that may be a great part of your life.  Anger in marriage is difficult, but it is not impossible to overcome.

Thicker Than Blood.

I fully understand that friendships and family relationships have their positives and negatives.  Each can have their emotional impact on you as a person.  Friendships, however, have the power to introduce you to great people; people you are willing to be open with and make sacrifices for.  Blood and water are both vital liquids to living.  Do not make the effort of sacrificing one for the other.

Talk to your Spouse: Emotional Cheating is Real.

Consider what you are doing, what you are jeopardizing, and how you would feel if you were in your spouses’ shoes. It may be time for you to put your spouse first, kill the cheating while you can. This might mean the end of that relationship with the outside person permanently, but you will need to be okay with that as your marriage is already on the line.

Why Do You Want Advice.

In many cases you don’t know what kind of challenges they’ve face that day, but they are there for you. Save yourself, and your friend the trouble; If you don’t really want advice let them know or call someone else that will agree with you no matter what.

Take the Time to Heal.

This pumping of the breaks is not because you are a terrible person. It should happen because you love yourself enough to tend to self-care, and you want to be fair to yourself, and whoever you choose to be with going forward.

That did not work. So, I had to work to build communication.  I had to be honest while crying and screaming.  I had to bow out of a lot of great opportunities out of respect for a friendship.  It was not easy at all, but I would not change any of it. The experiences helped me to realize that effective friendships take work, and they are not just simple buttons on a webpage.

He’s Still Your Baby.

My father saw my sister and I, both married and mothers, as his babies until he passed. He wasn’t demonized for such…he loved my brother the same. Children, regardless of age, should experience their parents love for as long as life permits. They should know they will always be someone’s pride and joy…someone’s baby.

You Can’t Change a Narcissist.

If you are already in a relationship with a narcissist, and experiencing the emotional abuse know there is nothing wrong with you. Know that you are not going to be able to change them; change is something they will have to pursue for themselves. However, it might be a good idea to begin to work your way out of said situation. You deserve better than to be mistreated by anyone that doesn’t know your worth, but that starts with you understanding you can’t change them.

No hobby should be an addiction because it will cause discord. Just know that sometimes playing the game is how your man is decompressing, and trying to work through the issues on his mind. In this area we should probably leave him to the game, or join him.
