Wow, life can be so stressful sometimes, can’t it? With all the complications, second marriages can be a pressure cooker for those involved. One way of helping to alleviate the pressure is to somehow, some way find time for yourself. Take some time to remember who you are, besides being a stepmom, mom, wife and partner. Do something you enjoy, even if it is only once or twice a week.
Do you and your spouse seem to be opposites? In an earlier post, we talked about learning to see your differences as a gift instead of a curse. Because personality differences in a marriage means you both have different strengths to offer in the marriage. Recognizing this can be extremely useful when considering what you may think is incompatibility.
Another way to help handle your differences is to understand your respective personalities better.
