Just wanted to share a little win I had today.
Currently on my honeymoon and my husband and I were scheduled to have dinner with another couple (friends of ours) in a Hawaiian town about an hour from where we are staying.
He didn’t really feel like going and it was also an hour away (super inconvenient for us to Uber there) and, although I was worried it would be rude of us to cancel last minute, I remembered what I had read in Surrendered Wife and just said, “Whatever you think is best.”
He decided to cancel it and then we find out that the other couple is having an insanely busy day themselves and secretly didn’t want to host us either.
Can you imagine if I had insisted we go because I was worried about being rude? Not only would it have caused a mild disagreement between us (and loss of intimacy) the other couple would have equally not wanted us there, resulting in four unhappy people.
Now, we get to surf late tonight, get drinks and dinner whenever we feel like it and enjoy a carefree night.
It was a little win and I wanted to share it with you all!! I feel lucky to have found this space.
