Our words matter! Our words have the power to hurt and they have the power to heal.
Hurtful words tend to come up at times in our marriages.

🤬The first step is to take responsibility for your own actions. Even if you feel passionate about the situation is it possible that you could take responsibility for the way you communicated with them?
