I remember the situation like it was yesterday. We had just flown back from visiting my parents. The kids were young. Something had happened between my mother and me. Something I thought was completely normal. But not so, according to Edrina.
I was amazed when Edrina told me that the totally dysfunctional encounter I had with my mother, while on our holiday, was not normal life.
As a guy, it was tough to admit that I needed help. Yet, my need for help seemed to outweigh my need to protect my pride. I was at a point of desperation. Her words had opened up a past I didn't want to look at but was being forced to. A volcano was erupting inside of me and I was going to blow, whether I liked it or not.
Up to that point I had lived with an inner anger that punched holes in walls, broke desk drawers, and generally caused a lot of grief, yet I didn't know where it stemmed from.
Through counseling, I was about to find out.
Whether you know it or not, you may have dragged a lot of baggage into your relationship. The beginning started like a honeymoon, but the baggage quickly rose to the surface.
To deal with that baggage and to make your relationship work you'll have to do some things you're probably not very comfortable with. You have to communicate more with your partner. You have to connect with feelings you would rather suppress. Connect with words and emotions that your work buddies might laugh at you for, yet are crucial if you really want your relationship to work.
As a guy, you have to figure out what's more important to you – your pride or your relationship with your partner.
As a guy, to save my relationship, I had to suck it up and get professional help.
Like him or not, Michael Jackson had a song called "Man in the Mirror." That's where you need to start.
