When my husband and I first met, I had alot of issues controlling my emotions. I was like a child and would throw tantrums when life went sideways. However with the help of therapy and this community I've gotten alot better. And what happened yesterday was a testament to that.
My husband and I were out of town and I had given him my credit card to buy something so we could get points for it. Then, he lost my card.
The old me would have had a full blown meltdown in the parking lot and erupted into yelling at him for this. But instead, I kept my composure, held his hand, and told him it was alright while he apologized to me for losing the card. My husband was blown away. He stared at me in shock for a moment and then commented that he was highly impressed with my reaction.
We then went back to our room, made love, and snuggled all night. I feel like our marriage turned a huge corner after yesterday. My husband seems less stressed out and happier now, and I feel alot happier now too. What would've ruined our trip before became a small bump in the road before we quickly got back to smooth sailing. I've also started reading Fascinating Womanhood to continue growing in my femininity and becoming a better wife and woman in general. I'm really happy I found this community.
