I don’t understand why I am facing this challenge in my life. I feel like what I want isn’t much, I just want someone to share my life with and rejoice in things with. I want to come home and have someone to talk with and cuddle up next to. It is hard to face these challenges, and I can’t say exactly why my prayers haven’t been answered yet but I know I will meet him someday. I guess I’m learning the art of patience as the months and years pass.
Maybe it is preparing me for this,
Patience gives your spouse permission to be human. It understands that everyone fails. When a mistake is made, it chooses to give them more time that they deserve to correct it. It gives you the ability to hold on during the rough times in your relationship rather than bailing out under the pressure.
If asked about this four years ago, I would have looked at you with head turned askew, “huh?” I guess the fact that I now grasp this, all of this, ends this post on a positive note. It’s all a process–a learning one.
