Your in this thing together, Aren’t you?

My husband would rather a disagreement just “go away” and we move on, but me, I have to get to the bottom of it. I’m the peacekeeper, the mediator, the talker. I have to find the why, and the how it happened in hopes that the same issue doesn’t arise again.

We must learn to handle disagreements wisely. We must talk things through to better understand one another as well as how to find a resolution. Some of the best advice I can give is to be okay not being right all the time, no one is! Be a better listener, especially when your partner is speaking. Actually listen, and don’t be preoccupied with what your response is going to be or what is being said that you might not agree with. Most of all, be compassionate and respectful towards one another because we all make mistakes.

“Love is patient, love is kind” (1 Corrinthians 13:4-8)
