When you are going through pressure or pain in your marriage, forever is a long time. The happiest moments in your life should revolve around the times that you are with the one you love the most; unfortunately that is not always true. Sometimes, the one you love the most is the one who hurts you the greatest. Often you share your heart, but they don’t hear you. When they express their frustrations in life it’s always toward you, but it’s often not you their upset with.
See you are the person they are the most comfortable with. The one that can’t fire them for expressing their emotions, won’t leave them for making bad decisions, and often love them without condition. It sad to say, but you and your family members are the only safe place they can vent. But this can be harmful and disruptive to your marriage. Share with the person, that if they continue to use you as their only outlet to release their negative vibes, then you will have to put space and distance between you.
Your life and health is important. You are important. I pastor that I used to spend time around, would always tell his congregation: “You are valuable”, You’re dreams are valuable”, You’re thoughts are valuable”! No wonder his church is growing by leaps and bounds…every human being needs to feel valued by someone, especially those they love the most. Cause forever is a long time!
