Sometimes we go through really hard times in a relationship. We question everything we thought about the other person. Question whether they truly love us or care about us. When things are hard, they are usually really hard, and it can be difficult to see beyond the pain and the hurt.
Then to make matters worse our mind starts racing with all these worst case scenarios. We wonder what will happen since our significant other is angry. Will they do more things to hurt us? And so our imagination runs wild.
One of the best and most helpful things to remember in times like these, is that the current situation will pass. You won’t forever feel this way, neither will the person you love. When the dust settles, and smoke clears, you’ll find that you are the same people. In marriage this is crucial. You have to hold onto the reality that your spouse does love you, just at the moment neither of you “feel” any of that towards each other.
Coming to terms with that will make it better, and then realizing it won’t be like this for long. Whatever the disunity stems from, be humble, ask for forgiveness, don’t hold out and try to “win” the fight. It’s not about winning.
Stick with it in hard times. You agreed to that. For better or worse. And while in a perfect world the worse wouldn’t exist, but it makes the better all the more good. So stick with it.
