We spend a great deal of time throughout our day wearing our public face. In our work we have to be the person who gets the job done. Many times there is that other side that we suppress when we wear our public face.
That other side that we are guarded about in public is often seeking attention. Seeking to unpack all the emotion and confusion, seeking to be understood. The face of past failures, regret, fear, and doubt lives here and sometimes must be understood and heard. Who is there when these conversations need to be had. Who will have your back, comfort and protect you during this time?
In your Marriage create the emotional place and understanding where you are each others rock in times of need. If you have this, you will weather the storm of the difficult times. In good times you will both feel deeply loved and understood.
