Show Notes for Episode 22
Problem #1 – Looking Inward to round out your needs
Biggest problem is that you're looking inward when you need to be looking outwards to help out your spouse. IF you find yourself getting sad or depressed – that's a key that you're looking inwards.
In order to love someone you have to look at your spouse and appreciate them, love them, spoil them. Remember, LOVE is not just given, you have to work for it. The greater the love the more work that has been done for it.Love is not just given, you have to work for it. The greater the #love, the more work that has been done for it. Click To Tweet
Problem #2 – Growing In Your Relationship
Most of the time, when we have problems with our life partner, we tend to look through the lens of what they have done for you lately.
Remember that Janet Jackson song… What have you done for me lately?
Well, it's kinda like that.
It's basically boiled down to maturity. We either learn how to deal with it on our own or we reach out to people that have been through the struggles and pains of a relationship. Those are the people that are well worth your money and time to get answers.
Resolution #1 – Change Your Perspective
When the going gets tough, the tough get going.nobody left a name – they ran outta town
What does that mean to us as it applies to our relationship? Simply put it means that we learn from our mistakes so that we do not have to run from our problems.
Yes, that quote means when things get tough, the tough generally head out of town so that they don't have to deal with the tough problems.
We take on a lot of tough problems and when we just don't have it to give, we turn to God. God is our creator and He will change your heart to be the best partner anyone has ever had. Why not make it your partners experience rather than starting all over with the same problems.
Resolution #2 – Serve One Another
Instead of thinking about why your partner no longer meets the needs of your standards. Flip this around to an attitude of service. You are both in life together to help each other, add to the experience of life for one another. So something nice for your spouse as a lover would do things to and for each other.
