We all want to think that our communication problems at home are different from the communication problems we have at work. In fact, though, corporate training companies like VitalSmarts have shown that communication skills are the same at home and at workjust the stakes are higher at home, where getting fired is not just a new job hunt.
Regardless, this post is about our marriage. So if these posts bother you, you should ask yourself why you are reading past this paragraph. Instead of complaining, ask for what you want in concrete, measurable terms.
In counseling, my husband and I had the earth-shattering revelation that we are treating each other like crap. So, we each got to ask the person to do some things that would change that dynamic and help us feel better about our relationship.
My husband asked me to stop throwing things, which really pissed me off because I have thrown things twice, in fifteen years, both times at a wall, but he brings it up constantly like I have a track record for throwing daggers at his head. That he say or do one nice thing to me every day.
He definitely got ripped off in this bargain. Do not write to me about how this is a metaphor for our marriage. In all marriages that reach a low point, both people are getting ripped off equally, or else someone would threaten to leave.
And neither of us is leaving. The first day comes, and he writes me a note to thank me for taking care of the kids.
Thanks for taking care of the kids. On my Facebook wall. And before you go to mine, let me confess that my assistant does a lot of my Facebook stuff — which is not uncommon because many professionals are on Facebook only because of peer pressure.
My assistant sends an email to me to let me know my husband says, Thank you for taking care of the kids. But after three days of Facebook-based gratitudes, I remind him that my assistant manages my Facebook page.
By now, my Facebook page looks like a greenhouse. I count the days until we will be back in a counseling session where I can ask for something different.
Take responsibility to make your boundary needs clear. Then I got an email from Ryan P: Mine is blogging, his is Facebooking. You must keep talking. The other assignment we had from the marriage counselor was to have a conversation. It takes us a while. So on Friday night we put the kids to bed and we sit down to have our conversation.
We sit across from each other on our impractical-for-a-kitchen but squishy-soft pink rugs. There is a soft hum from our refrigerator.
There is an orange glow from the Halloween lights my son taped across the wall. Our conversation topic is pre-selected for emotional safety: My husband refers to this book as peak-oil literature.Things like ending fracking, ending NAFTA and other FTAs, strengthening unions, repairing our infrastruction, education reform, ending the ACA and replacing it with some form of single payer option, actually curbing banks and financial marauders, making a start on global warming, ending poverty, repairing our infrastructure, repairing our.
Education: "We Should Cherish Our Children's Freedom To Think" This essay is about the article called "We Should Cherish Our Children's Freedom to Think." It was written by Kie Ho, a business executive who was born and raised in Indonesia.
Ho writes this article about wh. So, at each moment that we are reminded by suffering, we must shift our thinking and thank God for God's certain promise of our eternal existence without suffering and the relatively extreme brevity of our existence in this suffering world.
We married pretty soon after we started dating (it was 8 months after) and had our first baby (our son Boston) in (a year after we got married) and then had our second baby (our daughter Rose) in (Boston is 14 months older than Rose) I am feeling loved and blessed and my husband and I have started discussing our third baby.
Analyses of God beliefs, atheism, religion, faith, miracles, evidence for religious claims, evil and God, arguments for and against God, atheism, agnosticism, the role of religion in society, and related issues.
It is really great to talk about the Covenant that we have with God. And many people think that they have just been lucky enough to get in on the deal without having to participate in the requirements of the covenant, kind of like having someone give you a car without having to pay for it.
