Like most little girls, our two girls are especially head over heels in love with Frozen, one more than the other. So it’s no surprise that one of my daugther’s Christmas gifts was a Frozen radio/MP3 player combo. As if she wasn’t already doing it, they can now belt out the songs of her choosing. If it’s one thing I’m reminded of constantly (even more now that I have to listen to it several dozen times a day), it’s to simply “let it go“.
So it made me ask myself: What are some things that I needed to let go of in marriage?
We can’t always control what happens, but we can always choose to control our reactions to what happens. When things don’t go our way, or when we have a really screwed up day, it’s easy for that cloud to hang over our heads. Or worse, to take our external frustrations out on our spouse. But it’s up to us to choose not to allow our own thoughts to “ruin a good today by thinking about a bad yesterday”. The more you keep repeating to yourself to let it go, the easier it becomes.
So when it comes to marriage, here are 5 things you need to let go of in marriage today:
We all have an ego. And if you feel like you don't, then you just might be the one that needs to let it go even more. When it comes to certain situations, we have to be willing to let go of our ego. Sometimes it's hard to be told about ourselves, especially when it comes from those closest to us. Marriage for me has definitely been my own personal development course. I had to accept the fact that my husband has a right to not always agree with me, or to tell me when he's upset about something I did, without me having a fit (or giving him the "oh no you didn't" look).
