I had some dental work done today. It wasn’t really that serious, but for some reason it really unnerved me, so I asked my husband to go and sit with me during the appointment. He didn’t act impatient. He didn’t make fun of me or treat me like I was being silly. He just loved me and took my need at face value. I felt truly blessed (and the ladies at the office thought he was funny and sweet, he has a lovely sense of humor and told them he was there to keep me from biting folks, I kid you not).
So as a tip idea … take a similar attitude toward your husband. Not the biting part, ;-) the part about respecting your spouse and treating them and their needs with kindness and understanding. A need is a need is a need. Judging the value of your spouse’s need is judging your spouse in a way. How kind it is to value them by valuing their needs (however silly the need may seem to you at the moment).
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Philo
