Just how do you hold your tongue when you are super upset? How do you hold your tongue when you know your spouse has wronged you? Couples will have their share of disagreements in marriage; however, couples must learn techniques to help with anger management.
Marriage is a wonderful covenant. You marry the person that you can’t stop thinking about, the person you can’t stop talking about, and the person that just hearing their name makes you smile.
With joining two “individuals” together to live in harmony under one roof, there is a bound to be some hiccups. Disagreements = 2 people with 2 opinions. Your opinion is important but we must understand when, where, and how to express your opinion.
We are all human and we are subject to bump heads with the one we love; however, don’t allow these disagreements to drive a wedge between you and your spouse.
When there is a disagreement don’t feed the fire with sharp words instead stop, pray, & think.
Remember the ABCs of anger management:
A: Acknowledge the anger
B: Backtrack to where the anger/disagreement began (what triggered the anger/disagreement)
C: Consider the source of the anger (what is really causing you to be angry)
The best thing to remember is there are no winners when there is an argument. Hold your tongue and agree to disagree on this subject.
Never let weak moments (disagreement) take away from the foundation (bond) you & your spouse are building…
Your love is stronger than any disagreement & your marriage is worth more to you than winning an argument.
Will you HOLD YOUR TONGUE the next time you and your spouse are faced with a disagreement? Try it & see how fast the disagreement is dissolved.
