Marriage over Media (part 2)

It is not your job to speak for your spouse.

I read posts and statuses daily from others declaring the love of their significant other. Demanding attention and agreement from peers. While social media has given us so many things, it has taken away just as much. We have found ourselves living in a world where woman and men alike constantly defend their relationships and whether it’s genuine or not on Facebook. If you are constantly defending your spouse or proclaiming his love for you, you are not the problem. You are only half the problem. You should never defend his love for you. You should never have to convince another person, especially another woman of your mans love for you. That’s his job. If he can’t profess his love for you on his own, you don’t need him.

Social media has taken things that should be done behind closed doors, in the privacy of your home and your heart and put it out for the world to see. We have got to stop looking for instant gratification online and take it back where it belongs. Nine times out of ten, others are not sharing in your heartaches anyway. They are laughing at it. It’s a sad truth. We have become so accustomed to sharing all of our thoughts with our “followers” that we’ve begun giving away pieces of ourselves and our marriages.  Something’s just aren’t meant for the world. They are meant for two people. You don’t hide love, you can’t. For it is something that is seen by all. You don’t defend love, it defends itself.

Just a little food for thought. Instead of taking your precious time to convince others how happy you are and well your relationship is, disconnect from the social world and reconnect with the center of your world. Your husband (or wife of course).

Bloggers Block

Im starting to feel like I’m trapped in my own mind. Others tell me all of the time what great advice and words of wisdom I have. For some reason, I can’t seem to get them out anymore. I’m not sure if it’s because I have a growing audience or because I’m not getting as much feedback. The entire reason I came here was to begin this journey with those who aren’t biased. Those who haven’t already formed an opinion about my “writing”. Now, I’m stuck. In my own mind. It’s there and won’t come out. Come out! Words, come out!

I am grateful for my fellow followers, and my devoted readers.  Those who have found something interesting and decided to follow along. Any advice on how to shake this “bloggers block” is welcomed. Feel free to chime in! I’ve learned that you never know where you’re next inspiration will come from.

Thank you.

They say “it takes a village to raise a child.” and that is very true. We are so blessed with family and friends that are quick to lend a hand, keep an eye on the house, help with CG, cook a meal, watch our dogs, and send up prayers. Each one means so much. The outpouring of love is always appreciated. Thank you everyone for the thoughts and prayers. We have made it home safely. I’d like to ask everyone to continue praying for Chance as we are waiting on some important news. I know I ask a lot, but God is still working miracles and I’m still believing in ours. Just add him to your nightly prayers or your prayer chain, or both. Just please don’t forget to add him. From our family to yours, thank you.
