I Want to Make My Marriage Work


“I want to make my marriage work, but I can’t get over the past.”

Does this sound familiar to you? You might have heard it from your friend, or you yourself might have said it. Getting over the past seems quite impossible for many of us. We can’t forget what has happened in the past, things that hurt us. We are carrying this emotional baggage with us everyday. When similar incident happens again, we add it to the baggage that we are carrying. This baggage is getting heavier and heavier each day. Many of us can’t get rid of this baggage and live a miserable life. If you are in this situation, don’t worry too much. There is hope.

It’s not what happened that make you hurt, angry, etc. It is the meaning you put to what has happened that made you feel that way. For example; your partner forgets your birthday. What comes to your mind?

“I’m not important anymore?”
“He/she doesn’t love me anymore?”
So on and so forth.

It is not that he/she forgot that hurt you. It is the meaning you put to what happened. He/she just forgot, period. You can’t change what has happened, but you can change the meaning you put to what has happened. This is the key to get over the past and move on to live a happy life.
