Today I have the pleasure of guest posting on another blog. True Agape blog is all about marriage, love and relationships. Now, I don’t claim to be an expert in any of those things (are any of us, really?) but I do know how I want to be treated and talked to and I’ve turned those feelings and experiences into advice about communication in marriage.
Marriage is a tricky subject to write about. The concept of loving your spouse may be a easy but the execution of it can sometimes be hard. We all bring different baggage into a relationship that can muddy the waters and make what should be an easy task, difficult. I can’t assume what works for me will work like a charm for another couple and I’ve learned to never assume everything is just peachy in someone’s relationship. Couples do an amazing job of hiding their problems until one day everything blows up and the rest of us watch their marriage crash and burn and wonder when things got so bad.
There is no such thing as a quick fix or magic recipe when it comes to relationships and I don’t want readers to think that my little post will keep every couple in bliss. It won’t. Advice you find on sites like True Agape are meant to be a little boost here and there. In the marathon of marriage these little posts are like the cheerleaders along the route, the water station or shady spot. They give you encouragement, advice, and hope but they can’t run the race for you. The hard work of putting one foot in front of the other when you want to give up is all up to you and your spouse. The joy of being apart of something special belongs to you.
All that being said, hop on over to True Agape to see read my ramblings about communication.
