Create Your Own Reality

When you were a kid did your Mom ever tell you to be nice to your friends so they will be nice to you? It sounds simple but it is actually brilliant (as was all the other advice we didn’t appreciate at the time – maybe!).

The truth is, the way that we treat people has a huge influence on the way that they will treat us in return, and as with all principles of interpersonal relationships, this is infinitely more true in marriage.

Each one of us has the ability to set the tone for our homes, you need to be the one to take the lead in making your home the environment that you want to live in. If your home is not the soft glowing, warm loving, calm and nurturing place that you long for, take responsibility to change it..

When you scowl at someone they will scowl back, but if you smile at them, they will smile back. If you shout at your husband (or kids) they are going to shout back at you, but if you show them in your words and actions that they are the most important people in your life, then you will soon start to feel it coming straight back at you.

It’s very hard to angry with someone that is going out of their way to make you happy, but on the flip side it is very easy to be angry with someone that is always criticizing you and making negative comments. The way you behave gives you the chance to choose if your partner is going to respond to you with love and warmth or with anger and negativity.

Think of ways that you can create the reality you want to live in. Some areas you might want to focus on are: forgiving, speaking softly, sticking to your commitments, apologizing, giving the benefit of the doubt, smiling, prioritizing, giving, staying calm, having a positive outlook and being willing to talk about difficult topics.
