Let’s talk about #relationships
real quick. Why? Over the past nine years of marriage I’ve learned so - so much about my relationship with my husband and the relationship with my children. Not only the relationship that I have with them, but the one I want.
See this thing called #marriage
is not easy, and anyone who says it is - knows just exactly how much work goes into it on a day to day basis. The way you survive and thrive in a marriage is with honesty, trust, and communication. Talking with your significant other is one of the most important tools you will ever have - and it is there to utilize everyday. It doesn’t mean that it’s easy, there are topics that you don’t want to discuss, there are feelings you don’t want to let bother you, but at the end of the day - talking it through and working with your partner is the best for your relationship.
Now a marriage isn’t easy, but add in a child (maybe two or three), and that’s really when your relationship gets tested. You both don’t know what #parentingstyle
each has until you live and learn through it and that can be testing and trying to your marriage.
So, let’s talk about the relationship with your child/ren - oh man that’s a really hard one. You want to be their friend so you build up that trust with them, yet you want to be a parent and teach them lessons on the daily- man some days it’s a fine line. As you navigate life with your children you find what parenting style and disciplinary actions work for each individual child, the communication style also evolves and strengthens.
Overall, my biggest take-away from the past nine years is to #communicate
daily, share the struggles, share the hurt, share when you are proud and love when they do something, don’t be afraid to say something to your person and expect the same in return.
