Looking for a place to hang your hat and feel accepted for who you are? An island from the anxiety and dissatisfaction of the outside world? A place to call home?
Don’t expect to find it in marriage. You probably won’t.
Looking for a place where the tight space of a committed relationship will keep you at your growth edge by putting you in contact with everything you have been (unknowingly) trying not to feel? To become more aware of the things you never even knew you struggled with (but silently do)? To become more whole because of that courage? To know and be known in that complexity and vulnerability?
You will find that in marriage. Every day for the rest of your life together. And it WILL BE the best (and bravest) decision you ever made. And you may actually get to hang your hat.
