The Grass Isn't Greener

Have you ever secretly compared your spouse to another man or woman? Thinking that the grass is greener on the other side. Wishing they were more thoughtful, more spiritual, more loving, affectionate, a better kisser, dresser. If you have, you’re not the first and you definitely won’t be the last. Truth be known the grass is not necessarily greener on the other side.

We all come with our eccentricities in one form or another; he might leave the toilet seat up while your preference might be to leave it down. Truth be known from a health perspective it should always be down to minimise the spread of any bacteria.

Our spouses are the people we fell in love with, and often they just need a little encouragement. Instead of comparing and complaining, nurture your mate in the areas they need it most, encourage, edify, build each other up. Raise the bar of expectation to a higher level demonstrating your growth, mentally and spiritually aspire to inspire and reciprocate all that is good.

I heard about a good looking millionaire who married a plain-looking woman. It was the talk of the town. “Why did he marry her? She’s not up to his standard. It won’t last!” Was the talk of the town. When they came back from an extended honeymoon, it looked like the millionaire was with another woman, one glowing with confidence and poise. “Now that’s the kind of wife he deserves,” declared the town loud-mouth.

Then she noticed something interesting, it was the same woman completely transformed! Her new husband had taken her away, encouraged her and built up her self-confidence till she started to see in herself what he’d always seen. So instead of walking around on your neighbour’s grass, fertilise your own by looking for the good in your spouse.
