Your Spouse Wants You To Be More Like This
Do you really want a better relationship with your spouse? Focus more on their strengths than on their flaws; it’s one of the best Christmas gifts you could possibly give them.
Gift # 1: Please, catch them doing something right...
Instead of being critical and finding fault, find reasons to praise your spouse and affirm their strengths. Let them know you’re proud of them and their abilities. Make them feel valued; build them up. Do what you can to make them feel good about themselves.
Gift # 2: Accept their weaknesses...
Stop expecting perfection. Accept their weaknesses and flaws. Forgive and let go of resentment.
Remind yourself that you’re not perfect either. When you catch yourself obsessing over your spouse’s imperfections, remind yourself of some of your own flaws that your spouse has to deal with; keep things in perspective.
Gift # 3: Keep your love strong
If your love for your spouse has been fading over the years, it’ll be more difficult to accept and cope with their flaws, which is why you must do something every day to nurture your love.
Tell your spouse you love them, often – even if they already know. Demonstrate your love through your actions and behavior, such as hugs, kisses, gifts and acts of kindness.
Learn their love language and use it!
By applying these three marriage tips to your relationship, you condition yourself to focus on your spouse’s strengths instead of their flaws, making for a much happier marriage.
Until next time, this is Mike Tucker and I want YOU to be mad about marriage!
