My hubby and I are not big on Valentine’s Day.
Don’t get me wrong – there is a lot of romance in our marriage, but maybe that is why the day doesn’t have as much importance in our lives. We celebrate our love every day of the year. It certainly wasn’t always that way, in fact of our many years of marriage, I would say only the last few have been truly happy.
Much of the problem centered around my illnesses and his not being able to understand where my behavior was coming from. He couldn’t see that it wasn’t really directed at him and certainly wasn’t on purpose or in my control. Now that I am able to love myself, I am able to both show him love and accept it in return.
