Do you ever wish that more of life came with trigger warnings? More often than not, it’s a certain smell, a couple bars of music, or a seemingly unrelated scenario that can bring back the strongest of feelings and memories. And those reactions do affect our marriage whether we intend them to or not.
Not all of our emotions and behavior are understandable or predictable, but learning to recognize them in yourself and your spouse makes it easier to handle those painful emotions, however big or small. Year after year, God is equipping us to deal with our triggers in a way that honors Him and each other.
