I ran across this blog post the other day and the title got me – “Stop Being a Butthole Wife”.
In the post, the author tells the story of how she let little things (dirty laundry on the floor) get in the way of her having a great marriage.
When her husband passed away, her perspective changed.
Her story is a great reminder for all of us.
We could change the word “wife” in the title to any of the roles we play: husband, father, son, daughter, mother, friend, coworker, etc.
Each day there are plenty of things to pick at or on in our relationships.
We can choose to focus on the little negatives, using them to create separation between us and our relationships; or we can focus on growing our relationships.
We can choose kindness in our relationships.
I encourage you to read the post and think about whether or not you are being the butthole in any of your relationships.
If you are, start working on changing.
Make it a great day.
PS – My wife is the best and is in no way a “Butthole Wife”.
