If you want to fix your relationship, you need to take 100% responsibility for it.
Often we make excuses or assign blame in our marriage. We might feel like we are at the mercy or our husbands, what he is or isn't doing. But what if you owned your marital happiness like a boss?
Taking responsibility is managing the thoughts and feelings you bring to the table. It is deciding how you show up.
A relationship is simply a string of sentences in your head about the other person. Yesterday, I talked about not controlling your husband, but recognizing adults get to do what they want. You get decide what you think about your husband. What do you choose to believe about how he shows up? What meaning do you attach to his actions?
You don't have to take responsibility FOR your man. You are responsible TO him, not FOR him. There is a difference.
You do, however, get to love him as he is .
Take responsibility for yourself. It may not seem fair, but it is the way to do it if you want to love your marriage.
Where we are in life proves what we are thinking. When we change our perspective, we can change our lives and our relationships.
