Oh man, as if life wasn’t hard enough, so often we make it much harder than it needs to be. We are presented with a simple situation, we jump to conclusions, we assume the worst in the other person, we communicate poorly, we blame and shame until we have taken a very small problem and blown it up into a HUGE problem! And then comes the worst part – we tell the other person its their fault! CRAZY!
So what can we do instead? Slow down, think for a minute, get your emotions out of it, go for a walk – whatever you need to do in order to NOT make the problem worse! Because marriage is hard enough, without us letting our emotions control us and blowing things way out of proportion when in reality they’re just not a big deal.
