When I asked Casey Leigh if she’d like to write for the Marriage Diaries, she shared some beautiful thoughts in response on her blog. A few lines of hers stood out to me, but what struck me the most was this:
“Insecurity is a real stinker. When someone is stressed at work or hurting because of something completely unrelated to you….if you are insecure, you suddenly make it about you. It is because you aren’t good enough when in reality it has nothing to do with you.”
They say experience is the best teacher, but I wish I could have internalized this ten years ago—minus the experience! In a marriage, when your feelings are so tied up in someone else, it is easy to make things personal even when they weren’t intended to be. Can you relate?
