Be Broken Together
by Michael Garner, M.A., LMFT
When things get difficult at home, we often have no real close friends or families we believe we can talk to. Now, I understand some of this may have to do with keeping up a reputation, however, I also understand in today’s world of social media, relationships have grown to become superficial. It is not uncommon to hear a husband or wife share that they feel they are unable talk to their spouse about their struggles because of their own broken relationship.
In today’s world of total chaos, we must have someone we can turn to when things get difficult. However, when we look around, we quickly realize no one person really has all the answers. We are left struggling … alone. Instead of putting on the mask of superficiality and pretending we have it all together, we should learn to be broken … together. Turn to our spouse, regardless of the issues we are facing and be a team and face the obstacles … together.
Join me, share, and follow this blog as I share things I learn in my own journey or as I walk with others through their journey that relate to the complexity of marriage and family.
