No More Silent Treatments



Lysa TerKeurst shares wise advice that helped her address her husband better.

Recently my husband hurt my feelings, so I resorted to the ever so mature silent treatment.    

Can you relate?  Well, I was so upset that I called a friend who I was sure would understand and say something to make me feel better.  But what she said actually pierced my heart and helped to change my perspective.  She asked me, “Lysa, if you knew something might happen to Art today and he’d never come home again, would this situation really matter?”  Suddenly, my hurt was put into perspective and my outlook was completely different.  Instead of the silent treatment, I called my husband and gently told him why his statement had hurt my feelings. The anger and hurt had dissipated and, thanks to my wise friend, I was free to live the rest of that day with no regrets.
