Look at your marriage right now. Go back to the beginning, and look at the reasons why you fell in love with that person. Remember how it was and how you felt toward your spouse. Spend a week treating that person the same way you did in the beginning. One full week.
Forget the animosity, forget the fact that they refused to pick up the kids at school, forget that they worked too late and didn't call you. Drop all the anger and just spend a week really enjoying that person again. Write love letters, send great texts appreciating them. Whatever it was you guys did in the beginning, go back to acting that way for a week.
And for those of you who are divorced, take some time today to look into the mirror, look deep into yourself before you dive head-first into your next committed relationship. Instead of trying to replace your old partner with a new one, I want you to look at yourself and I want you to take full responsibility for all the reasons why your last marriage did not work, all the reasons that you’ve told yourself were not your fault.
If you're out there dating right now and are looking for somebody new, don’t tell the people you’re dating all about how your ex did this to you and your ex did that to you. Take full responsibility and move forward. Otherwise, you're going to be heading straight toward another divorce in the foreseeable future. You don't want to do that. You owe it to yourself to get it handled and have our relationships be a success this time around.
I hope this impacted you and I'd love to hear about your stories.
