Okay, ladies, I am sharing a big tip today! It works like a charm, and anyone can use it! I stumbled across it one day when I happened to be on the opposite end of the idea!
Picture this! I was sitting on the couch, frustrated with Gabe over miscommunication. He knew I was upset with him (not one of those waging wars and he has no idea scenarios). And what did he do with my frustration? He was extremely friendly (and cutesy) with me! I even told him to stop being nice because I was not finished being mad at him (I can be stubborn). So then, he decided to really top it off, by focusing on making me laugh! And it worked! I cracked up laughing! UGH, he wasn’t supposed to do that! But I am so glad he did!
I learned a marriage best practice from that day! A best practice that I love to use on Gabe now when the tables are turned! Anytime he gets a bit frustrated at me…I am extremely kind to him! You can’t stay mad at someone that is extremely nice right?!
In this scripture, we see two strategies that our wife of noble character uses.
This seems very simple, and I think we could all agree that a wife who does this will find more success in her marriage. However, it is not always easy to choose wisdom over impulse, and kindness over emotions. It takes a lot of skill and self-awareness to make kind words a habit. But I can promise you that if you choose wisely and speak kind words (especially in a heated moment), your marriage will benefit greatly from it!
Let your words create beauty within your marriage! Choose wisely and kindly…you won’t regret it!
