Recently, my dear husband and I have felt like we need to back up and start some things over. What prompted this? Well, when you realize you are still falling into destructive patterns, say when you fight, it is not a good thing. Not when you are on the brink of your 15th anniversary. You know? So we had to go backward a bit, dig up some of the yucky and ask ourselves how can we do this different?
Well, one way is to get away more often. The past, say two years, we have had about 6 dates I think. Especially if you do not count the company Christmas Party, or similar things. Because, honestly, who talks about deep stuff at the “crazy” company Christmas party? Not me. (it is hard to get my husband to talk about deep stuff anytime, but especially not in front of people who know him!!)
