It’s four months into the pandemic. Couples have had to spend an unprecedented amount of time with each other and it is reasonable that they have run out of things to say.
Or have they?
Stress has a way of making issues and insecurities rise to the top and if the marriage is not built on a solid foundation, it will crumble.
I cannot count how many calls and texts that I have gotten from clients about spouses and partners. One, in particular, is worthy of mention.
The couple has been together for a while but only recently decided to marry. To save for the ceremony, they have decided to cohabitate. While this seems financially beneficial, it has also revealed some internal struggles that neither of them anticipated.
“I don’t trust my husband.”
“He moves like a cheater.”
“What does that mean?”
“Well, he does things that he thinks that I don’t see.”
“What type of things?”
“He hides what he is doing on his phone. If I come in the room or wake up quickly, he changes his screen and puts down his phone.”
“Have you communicated your thoughts to him?”
“What do you mean?”
“Have you shared your concerns with him?”
This question led to a long silence and an unearthing of some dry ground that did not easily want to be tilled.
“I don’t want to have wasted another ten years with another cheater.”
Being wrong is not the end of the world, but sometimes it can feel that way. Loving someone honestly and wholly is a strength not a weakness; however, not being able to identify the obstacles that consistently blocked success IS SOMETHING to deal with.
I won’t share the rest of the conversation, but I thought that it was a good message to share with you—-
This pandemic can be a great time to get ready for what is coming next and the way to do that is by identifying what things are stopping you from walking out your purpose.
I want to help you get there. The WORLD needs you there and you can get there. Ask me how…
