Sometimes, that difficult moment may arise between you and your husband, and a part of you will wish you don’t love him or have affection for him. But it’s in that difficult moment that you ought to love him the most. You know why? Love isn’t only an emotion; it’s a decision and a choice you make; if you choose to love him during that moment when he’s at his worst, then that’s love.
Loving your husband when you don’t feel like will also strengthen your bond with him, and it’s at a point like this your love is needed, else that situation will only get the better of your marriage.
These are some ways you can love him in those difficult times:
1. REMEMBER THE GOOD TIMES
Don’t forget about the good times you’ve shared with your husband because of one or two bad moments. Let the pictures of the good moments you’ve had with him forever be above the bad moments.
2. CHOOSE TO OVERLOOK CERTAIN THINGS
You mustn’t react to everything, and if you want to protect your marriage from unnecessary quarrels and misunderstanding, then you have to overlook certain things. The decision to overlook certain things isn’t foolishness — it is love.
3. SEE THAT MOMENT AS A PHASE THAT’LL PASS
That moment will definitely pass; so never let a moment of madness kill the love and bond you share with your partner. That moment is a phase that will pass, but your love should be more than a phase.
4. REMEMBER WHAT MATTERS MOST
No matter the bad moment you’re experiencing with your partner, no matter what is going on at that moment — you should never forget what really matters most — love, unity, togetherness, joy and happiness. Never let one moment take these away from you.
5. LOVE IS NEVER ONE-SIDED
Love isn’t shown today and withheld tomorrow; love isn’t only shown during the good times. So, you ought to love your husband even when he’s at his most difficult mode.
6. CHOOSE TO FORGIVE HIM BEFORE ANY MISUNDERSTANDING
The beauty of forgiveness lies in the fact that it’s a nature in you that’s programmed even before an incident. You should have that nature of forgiveness in you, and it should be manifested when your husband wrongs you. Make that decision to forgive him before he even makes that mistake.
Even when he’s a jerk, even when he annoys you, even when certain emotions make you forget that you really love him — you shouldn’t let these things make you hate your husband at any point.
Always remember that love is a decision.
