What’s Your Excuse?

June 25, 2011

in the generous life

(A generous wife (thanks, Jen!) mentioned “The Chart” in a comment.  Several of you asked about it, so I tracked it down.  You will find it here.)

What is your most common excuse for not having sex?  Examine why this is so and do something about it. If you are too tired, simplify your life and make sure you have the time and energy you need.  If you have body issues, read a good book (aff link), talk with your friends, pray and generally seek God’s perspective on feminine beauty.  If you are having relationship troubles, seek help.  Deal conclusively with the issue behind the excuse.

Don’t make excuses – make good.  Elbert Hubbard

I don’t feel sexually attracted to my husband, and my emotional needs are not getting met along the way. My husband has the expectation that I am to take care of my body which I have always done and appreciate, but he feels it’s ok to let himself go. I’m no longer attracted to how he has chosen to present himself.

All the more important to find ways to be generous to him. It’s those little caring things that can reawaken his interest and give him the motivation to please you in return. What does he want and need most? Start there. (If you feel terribly stuck, do seek out professional help.)
