There are certain phrases that turn your spouse off. Phrases that are said in passing and others when you two are in discussion.

When used they are not going to bring you and your spouse closer together.

These words can be said in anger, as a way to pacify your spouse, or they have become common verbiage that you don’t even realize you say them so often.

It’s during these times that you turn your spouse off to what comes afterwards.

Why do you do this?

Why do you choose to shut down the flow of conversation?

Why are you willing to hurt the one you love?

Because in these moments it’s all about “You”. Yep… it’s all about what you want and what you know is best.

Here’s the thing, it’s not all about you.

Your marriage is about empowering each other so that you can be the best version of yourself.

When you cut off your spouse there is hurt, shame, and guilt. No longer are you working to empower one another.

It’s time to put an end to these phrases that turn your spouse off so that you can have open, honest and transparent conversations.
