Email of the Day: I AM Treated Like A Queen

Email of the Day: I AM Treated Like A Queen
I've been married for 23 years and my husband and I have a 16-year-old daughter.
Until I started listening to you four years ago, I didn't realize that I was the major part of the problem in my marriage. I grew up with a wonderful dad. He adored my mother and still does. I never heard my mom complain ever. She always took care of my dad, and therefore, she was treated like a queen. For many years, I compared my husband to my dad, complaining that he wasn't like my dad, and why didn't he treat ME like his queen? That caused a lot of resentment and strain in our marriage.

After listening to you, I realized I can't compare them. My husband is his own person. I fell in love with him for who he is, and not what I thought he should be. When I changed my pattern of thinking, I changed the way I treated my husband. And guess what? Everything has changed for the better and I cannot wait to spend forever with him. I want our daughter to see how important it is to appreciate your man. It makes all the difference in the world , and now I AM treated like a queen. Thank you!
