I read a post yesterday that really struck a cord with me its not about marriage per sae but I think it applies.
Courtney over at Be More with Less is on a mission to help us all to de stress and simplify our lives. This week she encouraged us to actually feel our pain instead of covering it up with food, shopping, anything we can do too mask our pain instead of dealing with it.
This goes back to my fear about being vulnerable and not wanting to show I’m weak. Shopping is just another way to cover up emotions that really need to be delt with. Our spouses are the person we are supposed to be able to rely on. So do it! Talk to your spouse about how you can deal with pain together instead of any other method of covering it up.
Oh and seriously read this blog post from Be More with Less.
