Episode 34: Valentine’s Day Massacre: How Not to Screw Up Your Romance Part 3
Funny how Valentine’s Day conjured up image of Cupid shooting people with a bow and arrow… sometimes, a relationship feels more like a Valentine’s Day Massacre!
How do you avoid screwing up your romance?
You have to apply grace.
No – not Grace Slick, legendary singer of Jefferson Starship.
No – not grace like a ballerina.
Grace is choosing to show favor whether it is merited or not.
Your partner isn’t perfect. She’s gonna mess up sometimes. As are you. You’re going to leave your underwear on the floor again, or she’s going to spend money without checking with you first. She’s going to lose her cool and call you a name. You’re gonna stub your toe and swear in front of the kids.
It’s going to happen. You will make mistakes.
A good romance applies grace – it doesn’t ignore the mistakes – it chooses to forgive and work with them.
Are there things that are irreconcilable? Sure. But if you want a romance to work – you have to choose to do everything in your power to reconcile as much as you possible can.
