A Good Husband Accepts His Mistakes

A GOOD HUSBAND ACCEPTS HIS MISTAKES

Rich Nicastro

What does it mean to be a good husband?

This was the question posed to a group of men at a recent men’s workshop. The focus of the workshop was men and intimacy. But a theme emerged about how men in committed relationships can be better husbands and partners.

“What does it even mean to be a good husband?” one man asked the group.

The answers to this and similar questions became the focus of the entire day. Clearly working on how to be abetter husband was central for these men.

6 ARGUMENTS ALL MARRIED COUPLES HAVE

Michael Fulwiler

In The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work, Dr. John Gottman lists the 6 most common areas of marital conflict. He explains that, “even in very happy and stable marriages, these issues are perennial.” We will touch on these six types of arguments, the task they each represent for a marriage, and offer practical advice for addressing the solvable disagreements they often trigger.

My father is the best mother on earth

MY FATHER IS THE BEST MOTHER ON EARTH

He was watering the plants in the posh gardens of an international school. The heat and dust didn’t seem to affect him.

“Ganga Das, Principal Ma’am wants to see you – right now.”

The last two words of the peon had lots of emphasis on them, trying to make it sound like an emergency.

He quickly got up, washed and wiped his hands and headed towards the principal’s chamber. The walk from the garden to the office seemed never-ending. His heart was almost jumping out of his chest.

Why Men Change For Women

WHY MEN CHANGE FOR WOMEN

Kyle Benson

Men who have low self-esteem tend to perceive themselves with low value. They lack strong core values because they are constantly seeking approval. These are the kind of men who struggle to maintain the status quo. They feel the need to meet everyone else’s metric in order to feel valued. They believe that without acceptance, there is no value.

When one lacks the belief that they are high value, it  creates an inferiority gap. This sets the values of others on a pedestal, and deeming them more important. As a result, these guys are liable to get run over by others.

When one feels like they are low value, they’re likely to base their feelings of success and worthiness on how well they meet the needs of others, instead of their own. Even though the entire idea of it is to gain others’ approval, this needy behavior actually repels others. Not to mention that it invites all  sorts of problems into one’s life.

6 things a man is only willing to do for the woman he really loves

6 THINGS A MAN IS ONLY WILLING TO DO FOR THE WOMAN HE REALLY LOVES

Lindsey Miller

When a man loves a woman, nothing will stop him from doing these 6 things.

It was a few weeks after my incredible wedding to my wonderful husband that I started to worry about everything under the sun.

With all the pressure of becoming a wife, going to my first semester of college full-time and learning how to live with another person, my mental health decreased to the point where I was having full-blown panic attacks over the silliest things.

My anxiety got so bad that some nights I would just cry for no reason at all. I couldn’t stop, either. Sometimes, it was sort of a laugh-cry because I was laughing at myself for crying.

THE TWO WORDS THAT STRIKE TERROR IN THE HEARTS OF WOMEN TODAY

Veronica Monet

They’ve been used to shame women since the beginning of time.

What two words have helped to shape the roles of women in society and the whole of human history? What two words carry enough power to not only lower women’s self-esteem but make them especially vulnerable to perpetrations of every kind?

5 things I pray to become a better wife

5 THINGS I PRAY TO BECOME A BETTER WIFE

Carmen Brown

When was the last time you prayed for these five things?

When I first got married I would pray often for my husband and for the situations we were facing, the arguments that were happening repeatedly, and for the things I just simply did not like.

For the moment, prayer would give me hope, satisfaction, and relief. I would stand up from my knees, wipe my tears and feel confident I did exactly what I was called to do as a wife.

With negative thinking, I would have a mindset of, “Unlike my husband I took the situation to prayer.”

DO YOU FEEL YOUR HUSBAND ISN’T ATTRACTED TO YOU ANYMORE? 2 THINGS YOU SHOULD NEVER DO AND 3 THINGS YOU MUST DO

If you feel him slipping away, this is for you.

Amberlee Lovell

Maybe he’s told you, or perhaps you can just tell by the look in his eyes. When your husband isn’t attracted to you, it feels like your heart will never stop breaking. After all, as a woman, society constantly tells you that how you look is everything.

What does a wife who has gone through years of caring for her husband and bearing his children do when she realizes he doesn’t think she’s pretty?

Some of our most natural reactions tend to be the most harmful while the things that actually heal require deep soul digging.

Healing can come when you keep these things in mind.
