Responding To His Crazy Ideas

Responding To His Crazy Ideas

One of the most difficult things about relinquishing control is that we don't always know when we're being controlling.
Letting your husband know how little regard you have for his ideas is the most dangerous and subtle form of control. When you squash your husband's ideas you are telling him you don't trust him. Without trust there can be no intimacy. Therefore, one of the keys to relinquishing control is to respect your husband'sthinking.
Next time your husband makes a pronouncement that sounds silly, say with as much kindness and sincerity as you can muster, "Whatever you think" reminding him that you respect what he thinks. Practice saying, "whatever you think"repeatedly because it's difficult to form those words when you really need themmost.
