Bracha from Holon – The first thing I learned in the Couples’ Workshop is that not everyone has the same perspective. There is no absolute truth. I also came to understand that I am not the authority on what is right and what is not. I was so ashamed to discover how much I had passed judgment my husband, as if my way was the only way. Suddenly, I understood how, for more than 15 years, I had begun each day plotting how I would finally convince my husband that I was right and he was wrong. And for the first time, it dawned upon me that it could be the other way around, at least some of the time.
This simple, yet logical discovery changed my entire perspective! It took the wind out of all of the endless arguments we were having. This quickly improved the relationship between my husband and myself.
