Marriage Series: Step Two

Marriage Series: Step Two

Loving Complaints Require Self Examination

Step Two: Own Your Part. Ask yourself what was going on in you when the incident occurred. Are you sensitive to embarrassment or criticism?
Do you care too much what others think? Are you defensive?

Look forthe part in you that made this event even harder than it might have been.

Even if she was clearly wrong, how did your temperament make it even harder.

Hint: If it was uncomfortable enough for you to want to confront your wife over it, your buttons were very likely pushed. Your buttons are your soft spots.
