stop participating in the problem

If you see a problem in your marriage, you don’t stop participating in your marriage, you stop participating in the problem.

Sometimes it is easy to draw back and not communicate when we are frustrated with our spouse. It’s easy to listen to that little voice telling us, “Well I’m just not going to talk because ______.” You fill in the blank. However, speaking up and having those hard conversations is sometimes the key to not having the same frustration about the same situation again. If you want to read 1 Corinthians 13 before approaching your spouse about something that is bothering you, do it. But don’t dust it under the rug and hope that it cleans itself up. Have the attitude that you will do whatever it takes and have whatever conversation that needs to be had before you allow it to keep your marriage from thriving and being at it’s full potential.

Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it.
Psalms 34:14 NASB
