I wanted to talk to you guys today about something I've read recently. I've been reading Clint's book on Consistency in DD that my wife purchased for us recently and something about it struck. The book was talking about reasons why the husband might be inconsistent, and it was talking the situation where the wife goes to the husband to request DD. In this situation, the husband may agree to try DD, but not be as fully committed to it as his wife is. The book talks about how the husband will give in to his wife's request because he sees it makes her happy.
I feel like this idea relates to leadership and decision-making in general. I realize that I often lack true leadership in some decisions made in the past, the reason being is that in my mind the reason I make my decision is trying to do what I think will make my wife happy, instead of really making a proper decision. To be a true leader, even in a marriage, will mean making hard decisions that may not make everyone happy. Certainly I want to make my wife happy, but that doesn't mean I should make a decision that I feel strongly against. or disagree with. In the future, I will need to take this into consideration when making decisions that affect our household. However, my personality is the type that will go along with what other people (such as my wife) are saying because a lot of the time keeping the peace is more important to me. This just means it will be an ongoing process to try to go against my nature at times, but I believe it will be worth it to have the best marriage possible.
Anyway, hope to talk to you guys again sometime soon.
