In the next few posts, we will be discussing a few ideas we have about keeping our marriages alive.
Today we are going to talk about attitude.
Attitude is the most vital attribute in any marriage. Your attitude will determine whether you have a great marriage or not. A good attitude says; I understand it’s not just “Me” but always “We”. A healthy attitude understands it’s never a 50/50 split down the middle; it’s a full 100% commitment. A positive attitude will always influence growth in the relationship.
It is amazing how if we make the decision to have a good attitude about a certain situation, our perception of that situation always is better. But if we stick to our usual negative, defeatist attitude, then our perception and then following that, our experience of that situation will invariably be negative.
Attitude is about choice! We can choose to have a good attitude about our marriage and the situations in our marriage and therefore have a good marriage, or... not!
