Being Right...What Counts? I am so grateful you are here and how you inspire so many of us. We lost our home last year, due to a fire and our insurance did not cover replacing some of it. Now my husband has a leg injury and he can't work. I do work at home and he and I are at odds over every ridiculous thing. My nerves are shot. LaVerne J
ML.... You have determined that what you argue about is ridiculous. Let's carry that to an extreme. If you could get your humor at life in gear, there might be some surprising changes. Instead of getting caught up in a debate, "I'm right" stance, look at the absurd ,the ridiculous, the insignificance of the battles. What is underneath the quarrels. How does your husband feel about being home so much? Does he feel useless, bored, angry? From there decide you are not going to support this debate team any longer and tell him.
Heart to Heart Connect Dear Merrie Lynn. It's hard for me to admit I've gained 30 pounds, I'm a single mom and I just got a new job. Stress is making feel like running aware from my problems. What should I do? Rebecca T, Seattle ML.....You know what you won't do, don't you? That is a clue what to do.
