When you start seeing your worth and suddenly realize that you have always been stepped on for a very long time and you decide to stop being a doormat, you'll find it harder to stay around people who don't value you. The most important relationship you can have in life is one with yourself. If you have that, then any relationship is a PLUS and not a must.
"As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17). In marriage, keep in mind that all arguing isn't problematic. It can sometimes help you to work through differences that are dividing your relationship.
Many of us have lived through things we would never have thought we were capable of, and we are much less afraid than we used to be. The process of wounding awakens us to our strength. It shuffles our values, and the top priority is never what you thought it would be. It’s never about perfection, or power. It always turns out to be about love.
