Take a Break

Updated: Sep 29, 2022

Omg where did I ever get such attitude from. When I’m overwhelmed and stressed I react in ways that I normally would not to my husband. I can become short and disrespectful. This is totally backwards because I know that as a wife God calls me to show my husband respect.

The funny thing is that if I boil it down, any upset I’m experiencing could be alleviated if I could take a breath, even a break in the other room for 2 minutes, and then communicate with my husband on where I need his help and support because I know he would deliver. Instead of assuming he’s a mind reader and automatically knows what my struggles and problems are, I just need to have self control, and ask.

One thing that I try to be intentional about is taking a break. I like to go for a drive, or go watch my favorite TV show… FRIENDS.

I ask God for help and try to pray but sometimes in the heat of the moment I am not thinking straight and I need something to distract me and make me laugh.

Youtube videos that are funny.

Impractical Jokers. Oh how I love those guys.

Revisit the matter when you have cooled down, or better yet the next day. Or maybe never! Sometimes when I look back I cannot even remember what we were fighting about! Which means it probably wasn’t even important.

“So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.”

Ephesians 5:33 NLT

With love and encouragement,

Amanda Marie
