What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

These are some great points.

What is ROL? I've never heard of that before.

Laura. Mio, Michigan

Lord help me remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I can't handle together.

If ignorance is bliss why aren't more people happy

Remember your hurting partner's inner struggle. They are their own worst enemy and have already ripped into themselves pretty hard.

Be the positive support they need.

Baggage is anything that you bring into the relationship that has nothing to do with the other person but can cause tension, damage, and strife between the two of you. Addictions, ex-lovers, past abuse, mother issues, psychological disorders, debt, insecurities… baggage in a relationship can include any number of things. Often they are issues that have gone on unresolved, but even personal history that seems under control can show up unexpectedly in the heat of a discussion or argument.

Living with Your Spouse's Baggage

Don't try to solve their inner conflict.
Do pay attention to their feelings; be empathetic and supportive--remember they are hurting.

Don't expect a speedy ROL.
Do be patient and encourage when you see small changes.

Don't Isolate.
Stake connected with friends..have a support system; get help and educate yourself.

Don't take it personally.
Do remember they are their own worst enemy. They have already come down on them, self pretty hard. Remember you are on the same team.

Don't withhold your feelings.
Do be tactfully honest about the toll it is taking on your family and about your own fears.
