I was recently chatting with my husband and he made me see that there’s a tendency for me to fall into the ‘trap’ of joining people to believe that I’m extremely busy. I took offence a bit, justifiably so! My schedule many times can be really choked up, having something to sort out almost every time.
Many married people have regrets about some decisions surrounding their getting married. Some see issues with when they decided to get married (too early, too late). Others blame family, peer pressure, etc. Today, we’re looking at timing/age. If you believe you were too young when you got married, so what are you going to do about it? You’re married already, face it! Marriage lessons are mostly on the job training types, so when you quit living in regrets and take responsibility for making your marriage work is when it begins to work. Yes you can. Make it work; morning
The things that crowd our minds as adults are simply amazing; they just have the capacity to really complicate things. The need to pay the bills, live up to societal expectations, create impressions in what schools we send our kids too and the lifestyle we want to create for them, etc can be overwhelming if we succumb to them. Going that route can be exhausting and so unfulfilling. Before you wonder at my ranting, let me share what I mean by sharing a few experiences with you.
Recently, I did a personal review of my relationship with friends from way back and for most of them, we’ve been largely out of touch. I have a justifiable busy schedule, but in thinking about it, I realized that at the end of the day, what matters after all is said and done is the impact we have made on the lives of people we get in touch with.
