Supporting Your Wife

The sun is shining in my window - its morning as I write this. I just caught a glimpse of a quote that was sent to me a few days ago which says "life begins at the end of your comfort zone".

Wow, that is a challenge!

I spent all of yesterday wrestling with an issue I have been trying to figure out how to deal with and I have to say it took me out of my comfort zone and forced me to think about ways to respond to it. My adrenalin was surging!

The fortunate thing for me is that even though this has been a very personal issue and one that I have to work through on my own, my husband has been very supportive and helpful in his behaviour.

I really feel like I am part of a partnership in which we are walking together on a path. We might deal with different issues - but we are there together and for each other. I'm in my comfort zone as far as knowing I'm not alone - but I'm out of my comfort zone knowing I have to take action in an area that has been untouched by me before.

So, as a man who is looking for ways to make your wife happy, this would be my advice to you... don't be afraid when your wife is doing new and exciting things or when she is wrestling with don't have to do it for her. The important thing is that she is assured of your love and support and knows you are there beside her throughout her journey.
