As part of our plan for growth this year, one of the decisions my wife and I made was to go for counseling. Our reason was pretty simple; we wanted to deepen of relationship and marriage experience.
We didn’t go into it because of a major problem. Rather, so we could move to the next level in our marriage
To keep our commitment to the whole process, we went for a paid option and were connected to a wonderful couple with many decades of marriage experience.
As things happen, my wife and I had one of those fights couples have about 2 days before one of our sessions.
I was talking with a couple who were both in their second marriages with each other. Both their spouses had died and they had raised grown-up children.
After they got married, the wife wrote an email to the husband’s children. The gist of her message was this “I am going to be your father’s wife. I am not trying to replace your mother”. The husband only got to know about the message after she had sent it.
I was with a group of married men this week. We have been meeting for a couple of weeks to learn about how we can add more value to our marriage.
During our conversations, we talked about how we have been dealing with sexual temptations. The first point by most of the guys was that sometimes one of the best way to win the battle to run from the battle
A couple of things happened to me professionally over the last one week. During a conversation with another professional, he proposed a line of action which could be considered a smart and legitimate move.
The only problem is that it wouldn’t line up with what I consider as personal integrity.
Almost everyone is coming out to talk about BlackLivesMatter. Whilst it’s a laudable thing, a part of me feels we might be ignoring some of the real conversations we should be having personally
Perhaps this is because I grew in a country with multi-tribes and I have seen how people are treated differently because they are not from the same tribe.
And this is not only limited to African countries. I have seen it in Europe. Some friends of mine from Ukraine told me of the problems they had when they first moved to Spain.
