Relationship Choices 2: Initiative


Sometimes a spouse does not initiate anything -- conversation, fun, affection, sex, romance, adventures -- you name it. Sometimes the one who initiates more feels justified in not taking initiative in an area where he or she is less comfortable. Sometimes that one area becomes the battleground. When you refuse to take initiative in almost any area, it often communicates to the partner that you don't care, that he/she doesn't matter to you, etc. -- even if that is not your intent. So whether you have one or many areas that need improvement, pick1 or 2 to start. Show up and step up as a loving, caring partner.
