Do you want a better marriage? Stop being so confident.
What happens when we’re confident about our relationships is we start neglecting them. We don’t spend the amount of time or money that are necessary to maintain or improve those relationships. We don’t give those relationships that we’re totally confident about the investment, the attention that they need.
Remember you’re only married as long as your spouse wants to be.
So if you want to stay married stop being so confident about your relationship. Check in with your spouse.
Invest the time. Invest the motivation. Invest the energy. Invest the attention that the marriage needs, to not just exist but to improve.
If you want a better marriage, stop being so confident.
