One Big Flaw in the First 25-Years of Our Marriage


August 2022

I always used to filter everything through how it benefited me.

Now I think about how I can act to better benefit the marriage.

It ain’t easy. But it’s good.

Just a thought for the day.

    They talk a lot at meetings about how drunks are self-centered in the extreme. Then you get some recovery and make some progress on that, enough to be able to function in the world and say “OK, I got that one.” So you move on. But then you discover that you never actually graduate.

    It sounds like you’ve discovered the next layer of self-centeredness and you’ve squashed it. Congratulations! A lot of people go to sleep after their first few years of sobriety.

    I’m constantly reminded of the need to always look for ways to be less self-centered in my relationship with my partner. Just when I think I’m the most giving and caring and outward-focused person around, she will show me exactly why I’m not that. And I’m the better for listening to her and getting to work on it right away.

      That’s exactly where I’m at Brent. I’m learning every day… and your comment added to that. Thanks, man. I needed to read that more than you know.
