It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking one has some kind of incurable behavioural problems just because you hadn’t been able to control your anger when provoked. No, that isn’t correct. Also it is incorrect to think that because of your upbringing, past experience of ill-treatment, bulling or any other traumatic experience, therefore nothing you can do to control how you respond to provocations and argumentative people
Every woman’s battle is not to compare their husbands to other men. I was in the process of doing that for a number of years. I compared him to my college professor — he wasn’t as intelligent; I compared him to my pastor — he wasn’t as spiritually passionate; I compared him to lots of other men — and in some way or another he didn’t measure up.
The moral of this is that you cannot find happiness by indulging in fantasies. People have found through experiences that delusion does not build but destroy happiness.

Self-interested behaviour is a problem in most relationships; it is not unique to you. Remember the Taker’s rule?. People are tempted to do whatever makes them happy, even when it makes their spouses or partners unhappy. When people are inconsiderate they don’t feel the pain or suffering their spouse or partner feels. They feel the pleasure gained from engaging in activities that are only in their best interest.
If you have serious doubts about the relationship, do not fool yourself into believing that your partner will somehow magically change once you “get married” or “move in together.” If you find yourself hoping that they will become less moody, less stingy, less angry, less jealous, or more loving, you are running a big risk of being disappointed and will most likely be headed towards divorce. If the potential for change is important to you, look for this trait BEFORE you commit yourself to the relationship, not after.
Loneliness also is the reason Rose, a single mom, turned to porn. She didn’t go looking for it in the beginning. “I was seeking companionship. In chatting with other lonely people struggling in their marriages, I learned of some Internet sites I could visit to make friends and have fun.

So in deciding which beliefs to embrace and which to drop, I keep going back to the concepts of empowerment and potential.
