You want to know when my husband and I fight? When one of us is trying to control the other in some way.
Sure we have those typical couple fights: money, waking the baby, what do you want for dinner (why is that always such a hard question).
But when I get down to it most of our fights are about some element of control. But the big question is why?! Why are we trying to control one another and for what purpose?!
Some of the reasons I thought of were: for safety (“babe get off that ladder it’s broken”); for companionship (“I don’t want you to go out tonight”); but the one that made the most sense was for self improvement.
Wait, Modo how do you control someone to improve yourself?!
You can’t! But this is how you fool yourself into thinking you can. Peep the scenario below:
My hubby and I started this meal plan. I bought all the food. Prepped. And printed out the list. The first day while he was at work I cheated. Yep before lunch I at chocolate. The next day he was going to cheat and I went IN on him. Then I realized I wasn’t going off on him I was really going off on myself. I didn’t want to do that damn meal plan in the beginning. Who was I kidding?
I needed to improve my eating habits, so I decided to control my husbands. Sound insane?! It IS!!!!! Lol
I told y’all to pray for me.
Ultimately we have to do US! Focus on you. Make YOU a better YOU! When we both focus more on bettering ourselves and just loving the other person we have the best days. Those are the days we kiss the most, laugh the hardest, and fall in love again.
Anyone else have crazy stories like this? Anyone feel my pain?!
Always with love,
