Tit for Tat

T

Tit for tat may make you happier for the moment, but always at the expense of your relationship. Falling in love made your heart sing, not because of what your beloved offered you, but because it made you want to offer so much more.
Happy Valentine’s day! Be generous.
And thanks for three great years so far. Here’s a post from that first Valentine’s Day in 2006.

I am a widow who got it right the second time. I have been sharing here since February 14, 2006 what I learned from that experience and from positive psychology, marriage research, and my training as a marriage educator.

  • Congratulations are offered better late than never. And you are so right…when you say that love opens your heart to give more. I’ve been reading through various of your responses and can just inhale the depth, sensitivity, courage, and optimism that you bring to the challenging subject of marriage. May you have many more years of putting out such hopeful and helpful ideas.
