If you are serious when it comes to finding help in resolving your marriage problems, I hope that you are prepared to do more than just think about it. When it comes to getting help with your marriage it is very easy to say you want help until you realize that you too must make some changes if your marriage is going to work.
It has been my experience that one of the reasons why so many couples seem to struggle with being married is that expectations are not met. However, you need to dig a little bit beneath the surface to get at the heart of finding help in marriage that is right for you.
There are so many reasons why couples seem to start out ok and slowly but surely end up becoming more like distant friends. One reason that comes to mind is folk’s unwillingness to sacrifice. I’m sure you are thinking that you have sacrificed the best years of your life being married to an unappreciative spouse. I often wonder though have couples really sacrificed for the greater good of their marriage? I don’t think so because if they did, fewer couples would be divorced each year. Perhaps with a little help in marriage, things can turn around for you.
I’m a big believer in sacrificing and when it comes to marriage there is no place for selfishness. To me, the only way that you can be happily married is by both spouses sacrificing along the way. Ok, I’m sure by now you are saying “what sacrifices”?
Sacrifices To Help In Marriage
Time – Time is one of the precious gifts of life that we often use, abuse and wish we could get back. We all get 24 hours per day to allocate out and very often the one area in which we sacrifice is spending time with our spouse. It’s so simple but yet so complicated at times. Please make time for your spouse that is meaningful. Don’t give him or her the little time you can spare out of your day. If you want to help your marriage get better, why not re-arrange your priorities and sacrifice some of the things you like to do for your marriage and future?
Ego & Pride – Although it is not really a sacrifice it is a necessity if you want help in marriage. You must be willing to swallow your pride and admit when you have fallen short of meeting your spouse’s expectations. What hurts many marriages is the failure to know when to say I was wrong and I’m sorry. When pride gets in the way, a marriage can easily become troublesome and spiral down very quickly.
I would like to encourage you to trust your spouse and try to let your guard down and make sure pride is not keeping you from having a blissful marriage.
Choosing to make sacrifices for the sake of your marriage and sanity is a wise decision. I hope that you find the right balance and get your marriage going in the right direction. You can find more helpful articles about strengthening your marriage here at, Help In Marriage.
