Yes, that’s really my earth-shattering Works for Me Wednesday tip. Keep quiet.
I don’t mean all the time, obviously. I’m speaking specifically about those instances, usually in social situations, that a clever little zinger pops up in your mind designed to poke a bit of fun at your spouse.
Please don’t do it. Keep quiet.
Your zinger may get a few laughs, even from your spouse. But the tiniest of insults leaves marks and does damage to your marriage. That definitely does not work for me.
Shutting my mouth to seemingly harmless jabs at my husband and opening my mouth to speak encouragement and praise instead–now that works for me.
