What do we want to divorce? We want to divorce selfishness, pessimism, and impassiveness. Divorce means to separate;detach from. We have to detach ourselves from negative thinking and accept that every couple has speed bumps but we WILL get over them.
Our mindset determines our mood, relationship, and our well-being. So often, we allow our self-centeredness to disengage us from our spouse, our coworkers, our families, or friends. It’s important to consider the impact of our actions and how it has an affect on others. Self-centeredness transcends to not allowing emotions to spill out and be intimate which leads to a lost of expressing affection towards your partner. When someone is self-centered everything is all about his or her desires.”Your not making me happy.” “Your not doing what I want!” Selfish ways generally leads to a pessimistic attitude.
When we are pessimistic, we tend to view things so negatively that it overshadows the positives in our relationship. Pessimism allows someone to no longer focus on the love, friendship, and camaraderie. The very foundation in which your relationship was built on. Combat this thinking because often things are not as bad as they seem and you are only a few adjustments away from the love you deserve.
