Will this ever get better? 

There was a point in my mixed faith marriage when I was sure that it was never going to get better. I was sure we were stuck in our mixed faith purgatory. We were both committed , but in a grim sort of, “we have come this far and invested this much we have to stay” sort of way.

It felt stuck. It felt heavy. If felt like enduring and not enjoying.

But that changed. It doesn’t feel that way anymore.

Today it feels exciting. It feels interesting. It feels like connection.

What happened?

I changed.

I changed me.

I changed how I thought  about me, my faith, my husband, my husband’s faith and much more. I did the work.

Guess what happened when I changed and felt differently. I started to act differently. I started to speak differently. I started to interpret my husband’s behavior differently. I started to relax a little and enjoy a little more. I started to reach out even if I was scared, even if I was rejected, I would still reach out.

My husband changed too. I can’t deny it, but he didn’t need to. Me changing was enough. I sometimes wonder if he changed because I changed the steps in our relationship dance. Maybe.

How are you feeling today about your mixed faith marriage? Be honest.

You don’t have to feel that way forever. BUT it won’t change on its own. If you keep doing what you are currently doing, you will keep getting what you currently have. You can change it. I can help.
