These comments were made by different men. They are all husbands. When expressed together they help understand the topic of emotional disconnection.
I know, I am the problem in our marriage.
I’ve just learned and am admitting this for the first time. I have been a shallow man my whole life.
Not working on myself has stunted me and hindered us.
Emotions make you act crazy. All my life my parents have fought and acted crazy. That’s why I picked logical growth and offering solutions over emotional depth.
If we are going to make it, my growth is going to lead us out of this mess.
This is the first time I’ve ever verbalized this thought. I need to work on “emotional growth.”
I have two challenges.
– In a difficult conversation, I struggle to find the right emotional words.
– And, a big part of me is fine living an emotionally small life and then dying.
Father give me eyes to see, ears to hear and an open heart. Help me with spiritual/emotional growth. And, show me the connection between emotional growth and Oneness.
