Remember Your Awesome

So many of my clients forgot how awesome they are. The same with so many of my friends. And the same with complete strangers with whom I only share a Facebook group membership. ⁣

So many talk about the trap of marriage, of having unsupportive partners or spouses. ⁣

No they don’t use those exact words, but the sentiment is the same.⁣

A husband who expects a clean house and cared for children as well as financial contribution from his wife...⁣

A husband who controls the purse strings so that he continues the role of father to his wife instead of partner...⁣

A husband who doesn’t do his part around the house expecting a mother disguised as a wife...⁣

A husband or significant other (SO) who belittles his partner’s efforts by suggesting she’s playing or wasting time online...⁣

A husband or SO who assumes the role of superior by “letting” his partner engage in side hobby opportunities...⁣

There are so many ACCEPTED variations to this story but it all boils down to this...⁣

Not being evenly yoked.⁣

Maybe when you got together, you started out being dependent...⁣

Maybe when you had a child, you were immensely grateful for the opportunity to stay at home & be fully present in your child’s life...⁣

Maybe you mistakenly thought giving up your career was the appropriate thing to do...⁣

But at some point you grew and he remained the same.⁣

Reclaim your awesome. Don’t dim your light. ⁣

A ring has the ability to turn into a noose real quick.⁣

Take your time to seek out who you are before you find yourself in a scenario with someone who prefers to keep you stagnant. ⁣

Then allow your light to attract someone who shines just as brightly. ⁣

Marriage is a plant that needs good soil. ⁣

Yes it will be watered by tears and strengthened by sun, but it needs to be planted in soil that will feed it and encourage its growth.⁣

Only then can its roots deepen.⁣
