Change does not come as easy as we would like it to be. When we find ourselves in a negative situation- such as discontentment in our marriage- we often hope for some instant magical solution.
However, change is taking 2 steps forward and 1 step back. We often believe that we have failed when we have taken that 1 step back. We tend to keep on repeating the habits that are causing our marriage to hurt because we do not see that it takes real work and it is a process that is not instantaneous.
When we feel like we are failing we can either keep working toward the same plan understanding that there will be some set backs. Or, we can change our plan and try a different approach.
However, no matter how we try to cope with our strategies, there will be progression and REGRESSION. Regression does not mean failure. We need to keep on working on our relationship because anything that is worth saving takes a lot of hard work. This mindset is absolutely crucial to improving your married life.
