I’m always amazed at how much I learn about marriage in just every day living. In this article about learning how to grow up in your marriage, I talk about the need to learn how to let go of, or do certain things. One of the things I had to start getting better with was the art of compromising. Even after eight years of marriage, I have to constantly ask myself if I’m being selfish, or if I’m being reasonable. In either case, I’ve learned the importance of owning up to my selfishness or explaining why I’m upset without getting all Real Housewives of (fill in your city here).
The other day was a great example of how much hubby and I have grown in our communication and in our marriage. What could’ve easily lasted hours or even days of being upset or annoyed, was easily addressed and put to rest within a matter of minutes. When I thought about it later on that evening, I was actually delighted to reflect on how far we’ve come and the simple steps we took to get over our spat so we could get back to focusing on what we love about each other.
