Are you living in your relationship’s past?

in Be a grownup, Communication

Sometimes when you find things that upset your spouse it seems the best solution is to just find a way around the problem; avoid the issue completely.

Detour © Paul H. Byerly However, these workarounds can become habit and be continue long after they should be dropped. Maybe it’s time for the other person to “grow up”, or maybe it’s time for you to grow up and face the issue, or maybe the two of you need to learn to communicate better.

Sometimes avoidance is necessary, wise, or kind, but it’s never the best thing for the long-term health of a marriage.
