Accepting that which you don’t want to Accept

 August 19, 2019

Few things are more difficult for two people to do than accept things they don’t like about each other.

“Why do you let that bother you?” someone once asked when I complained.

I thought for a long time before I realized the answer: I didn’t know why I let it bother me. It did no good.

“Let it go,” I was advised.

It was great advice. If some little irritation does not really matter, let it go.


Reflections:  Name one piece of advice that you received as a newlywed. Was it helpful or not? What advice would you give to newlyweds today?


This reflection is taken from the book, Marriage Moments II:  Michigan Edition, by Patricia M. Robertson, Kenneth Wyatt and Brad Flory. If you have a Marriage Moment you would like to share, please email me at I look forward to hearing from you. Also, be sure not to miss a Marriage Moment. Sign up to follow this blog.
