Call to Action:
Read the book Healing the Hurt in Your Marriage by Gary and Barbara Rosberg.
I read this book a few months ago and now recommend it to everyone.
Here’s the book description at Amazon: All marriage relationships face hurts and conflicts on several levels, but not many of us know how to deal with them effectively—so we don’t. Healing the Hurt in Your Marriage walks couples through a very manageable step-by-step process of understanding different styles of conflict resolution and then encourages them toward forgiveness and healing.
To your wellness,
p.s. You can apply the concepts in this book when dealing with conflict in relationships other than marriage as well.
