Pick Your Battles
by Dionna Sanchez
Emphasis On Moms
No matter how long you’ve been married; there are little things about your spouse that just drive you nuts. At first they might seem cute but over time those little things can really work on your nerves!
You can nag your spouse about whatever it is that is bothering you. You can deal with it on your own and let the resentment build up inside of you in the meantime. Or, you can gently communicate to your mate what it is that bothers you and why. Once you’ve done that, you need to learn to let it go.
Let me say that again. Let it go.
I don’t know why it seems so hard for us to let the little things go. But it is. There are so many circumstances that will enter our lives (and our marriages) that are really, truly important. We need to learn to weigh our options and pick our battles.
Think about it this way. In ten years will this “issue” really matter? How about in five years?
No one is perfect. You most certainly probably have little traits and habits that bug your spouse as well. So maybe if you cut him some slack – he’ll be generous enough to do the same for you.
It may take some effort, but you can do it.
