Day Three

Day 3: Love is Not Selfish

This day is about putting your spouse's needs ahead of your own.

"Love is never satisfied except in the welfare of others. You can't be acting out of real love and selfishness at the same time. Choosing to love your mate will cause you to say no to what you want so you can say "yes" to what they need. That's putting the happiness of your partner above your own. It doesn't mean you can never experience happiness, but you don't negate the happiness of your spouse so you can enjoy it yourself."

Today's dare says to buy your spouse something that tells them you were thinking of them.

The journal asks "What did you choose to give your spouse? What happened when you gave it?"

I bought Andrew a pair of fancy little steaks wrapped in bacon. He always wants to get nice steaks, but we never get them because they're too expensive. So I went ahead and got them for him. He was pretty pleased when I gave it to him.
