Are you a spouse?— Sweet Honey and Sacrifice- Marriage/Intimacy Coach (@SweetHoneyCoach) May 4, 2022
Do you feel like you can't/shouldn't have negative feelings toward your spouse or marriage?
We all have negative feelings sometimes and that is allowed.....
It's how we display them that is the problem
"Feel" your feelings but show them with respect!
12) Be positive.
A relationship means you come together to make each other better. Support each other. Build each other. Believe in each other. Be their peace not their problem.— Voice Of Love💞 Better Relationships • Better Life (@thevoiceoflove7) May 8, 2022
