A recent Seth Godin post about Misjudging risk (and bad decisions) got me thinking about how misjudging risk in marriage can lead to bad decisions. It’s easy to get lost in the tyranny of the immediate, and lose track of the greater importance of long range goals. We can spend so much time and effort trying to “look good” right now that we don’t have the time and energy to work on the things that will make our marriage better long term.
Marriage is (supposed to be) a life long journey. If you’re too focused on today, the future will suffer. Don’t be sucked in by quick fixes and band-aids – do what it takes to really fix, change, and grow.
