More Great Thoughts on a Successful Second Marriage
Amy (my wife) made a great comment on a recent post of mine for how to have a successful second marriage. I really wanted to make sure you all were able to read it:
I second your to dos! If people would only take a look inside and own their own junk it would make the world a better place. We all need grace and mercy! We set others up to meet our needs when we first know our shortcomings. An example might be if you know you have a hard time admitting when you’re feelings get hurt then you probably do one of the following: shut down, stop talking, assume the other person doesn’t care, get mad about something totally silly, shoot back with defensiveness, criticism, or shame.
Identifying an unhealthy behavior doesn’t mean the other person’s behavior is ok, it’s just your part. None of us want to grow up but we all need to. And maturity is a life long process we are all suppose to be doing. The moment we look to another person as both the problem and the solution we are stuck. Maturity happens independently of the other person.
These are some more great thoughts on second marriages (and any marriage for that matter). Thanks, Amy!
