Remember to Say
It is so important to vocalize your appreciation to your mate. Take time to share a version of these encouragements to your partner. Personalise them and watch their eyes light up. More tips are here
“You are the best, I do notice all the effort you put into this family. I’m glad you’re here,”
It was just that simple. From time to time, I make sure to stop what I’m doing, ask my husband to stop what he’s doing and focus on my words.
“I love you.”
“I need you.”
Usually, after one of these moments of appreciation, I can almost see his stress levels drop and he’s able to walk a little lighter.
We all want that validation that our spouse *sees* us, that they understand that what we do every day is not easy, but they appreciate us making that effort. Don’t get so caught up in the day-to-day business that you miss out on little opportunities to connect.
Go home today and make it a point to give your spouse a hug if you normally don’t. Kiss your wife/husband on the cheek and tell them that dinner was wonderful; thank her/him for making it. Throw on a slow song and dance in the living room together. Give them a massage before you head to sleep. Make sure they know that no matter how much is going on, you remain committed to them through it all.
