So how do you know when to stay and when to walk away?
– Pray: Say a quick prayer for him in your heart or invite him to pray with you.
Additional things I would love from my husband and should be willing to do for him include: I am not good at any of this.
As I thought about what validating my husband’s feelings even look like, I considered what I would have wanted from him if the roles were reversed.
I believe the ways I list below are general ways a husband and wife can validate each other’s feelings.
We may feel convinced someone intended to be rude, inconsiderate, or thoughtless when really that wasn’t the case.
On the other hand, sometimes actions speak louder than words, and our interpretations may be accurate. We need to be able to recognize that or we’ll end up feeling disempowered, disrespected, and stuck.Social media, has been a great way for me to quickly write down and communicate what is happening in my marriage and what I am leaning through my experiences.I also hope that those who read my updates are inspired to evaluate and really look at their marriage, but more importantly After going through some of the comments in response to what I said, a few women simply stated they did not understand what I meant.I didn’t want to be a wife who hurts her husband so I tried to defend what I said in a round about way to justify why I said what I said, but truth be told, I wasn’t making any sense…and I was further hurting my husband by not acknowledging how he was feeling.I could have encouraged my husband to stay positive during his time of defeat, but what I needed to do was validate his feelings.And I am learning it is oh so very important to do this!
