“Honor the space between no longer and not yet.” —Nancy Levin
When you are married, transitions don’t only affect you, they also affect your spouse.
Transitions can impact the different intimacies in your marriage.
Marriage is full of transitions:
- First house
- First baby
- Job changes
- Job losses
- Taking care of kids
- Taking care of your parents
- One income
- Two incomes
- Kids becoming adults
- And the list goes on
You can seemingly be going along thinking…
“Ah, life is good, we’ve got everything figured out”, then BAM transition comes.
Or, you’re planning for a natural transition, kids growing up, buying a house, moving and yet, no matter how much you plan for it, there are still situations in that transition that catch you off guard.
Everyone handles transitions differently.
Some people jump right in, put their blinders on and power through whatever that change is.
Some people can become paralyzed with all of the decisions that have to be made, they can feel helpless in those seasons, not knowing which way is the right way to go and so they withdraw from doing anything.
For some, transitions feel very uncertain, and there is a high level of fear.
For others, the transitions may be unwelcome or unplanned and there is a high level of anger or sadness.
All of these reactions will impact you and your spouse.
In this week’s show Tony and Alisa talk about how you can navigate life, work and other transitions you will face together as a team.
