Great Lessons Marriage Should Have Taught Me
1) The words I-Love-You will often be replaced by the words I-Love-You-But. It's possible to love someone, tell them, have them say it back & believe them but still be unable to communicate. It IS possible. The song was right. Sometimes love just aint enough.
I should not allow this reality to make me feel rejected.
2) If you have great sex that's all it means. That you had great sex. It doesn't mean all your differences have been resolved or that you've been completely forgiven or that your partner has forgotten all your mistakes or is now going to do whatever you wanted them to do that they've been refusing to do.
I should not allow this reality to make me feel used.
