"Don't keep it in!"

Have you ever heard the expression "the longer you leave it the worse it gets?" That is what today's post is about. How not to keep things bottled up before they explode into something bigger than they ought to be.

I understand that there are different types of people in this world. Some are extroverts, some are introverts, some are more proactive than others and some are less. If you find yourself in a situation where a disagreement, an insult, or a sarcastic comment has left a bitter taste in your mouth that you can't seem to swallow, this is the time for you to be proactive and speak up! Having difficult conversations are part and parcel of marriage but more importantly, are a part of your growth as a person. Being assertive and tackling issues head on as soon as they arise is a very powerful tool to have in your arsenal. It helps set the premise for what will and what won't be tolerated in a marriage. Not only does it establish a boundary of tolerance but it also kills dead any chance of Ill feeling or angst that might build up against your partner. Letting your partner know that they have wronged you prevents you from harbouring feelings that could blow up in both of your faces. We don't want that. Trust me on this one - it's better out than in.
