Today, my husband and I hit a roadblock. We moved from a secure little island where we lived off the land and had the security of a home and family. We moved to a town that we did not know in hopes to expand our experiences and expose my children to the a new lifestyle.
Before I realized moving to a town we didn’t know anyone, I was enthusiastic to meet new people and explore my surroundings. I have never been one to be bogged down by “material” items. I guest you would call me a traveler. Never before have I understood the need to stay in one place and just die there. I couldn’t imagine myself living in such a sad state. It’s perfectly fine for people that like that sort of thing. LOL
My loving husband is that sort of person. He likes and thrives on not changing a single things. If he could have it his way, he would be still on that little island living the rest of his days in a secure environment. I love his spirit🙂
Today we fought about finances and security. Being the go getter I am I was ready to plunge into anything and hope to heck it was the right decision, my husband on the other hand stood his ground on wanting security and the desire to go back home to the islands.
I would like to say our disagreement went as planned or we collectively came up with a plan however, we are further apart then ever before.
Security in a blended family can be a fight. It can become so large that it could possibly break your family apart. My husband and I are not strangers to the uncomfortable discussions, but we do understand fighting fairly.
We walked to our separate corners and are taking a moment to grab our thoughts. He takes comfort in talking to his family. I take comfort in doing a blog post. Whatever the need, calm your mind and thoughts. I know this will go better as soon as we calm down and revisit this in a non confrontational manner.
Never be afraid to speak your mind!
