What is one habit that you would like to change about yourself, and why? – YMM #043

Welcome!  Today’s topic is one that requires more transparency and vulnerability than some that we’ve covered. Have an open mind and approach with honesty!

Here is the question to consider: What is one habit that you would like to change about yourself, and why?

There are several reasons that this is an important issue:

  • Some habits of your partner could be problematic in the relationship.
  • Some habits may NOT change after marriage and you can’t expect things to change.
  • This topic requires that we look inside ourselves instead of pointing at the other person.
  • This is an opportunity to help each other get better.
  • Caution: If any habit is a deal-breaker for you, then make sure to deal with it BEFORE marriage!
  • This is an opportunity to strive to “Be the best version of yourself that you can be.”

How do we change habits? There are five steps: self-awareness, self-regulation (discipline), motivation, empathy, and social skills.

Your assignment is to set a time to get together and discuss today’s question.  Find out what your partner can do to help you, and vice versa. Have a follow-through plan of how to proceed in a positive manner.
