Can Gratitude Save Your Marriage?


When all of our time and energy is focused on what we don’t have, it can be very difficult for us to appreciate what we do have.

In our marriages, this kind of scarcity thinking can erode connection, intimacy, and trust.

When we become frustrated and resentful at our wife, our life, and ourselves, we begin to feel like a dependent powerless victim. We make others responsible for our happiness, and no matter how hard they try they can’t give us enough of what we think we don’t have.

For the next seven days try writing down 3 to 5 things that you are grateful for in your life.

It doesn’t matter if you write down the same things every day or if you are able to come up with new ones. See how differently you feel after seven days of focusing on what you have rather than what you don’t have. It’s very hard to be mad and glad all at the same time.

Choosing to focus on what’s already in our life shifts our way of being from frustrated and resentful to calm, confident and grounded. From that place of being we can do and have what we want in life without always feeling like what we have isn’t enough.
