Spouses and Spirituality
I think it’s important for couples to have some sort of spirituality in common. Your beliefs influence your behavior and unless there is some sort of understanding between two people there will be misunderstandings and miscommunication. Have you ever been in a situation where someone spends literally hours complaining about something negative? They don’t want to talk about how to change the situation, they just want to talk about how unfair it is. Well, you know that “Whatever you fight, you strengthen, and what you resist, persists." Try changing the topic to something more positive and you are seen as someone who doesn’t care. You also have to strengthen yourself so you can be strong for the other person. I know that is not easy to do and takes a lot of time. The other person is not aware of this and you can be taken for granted. Also being on the same wavelength, spiritually, can bring you closer together, as each party can build each other up.
