The last week has been very difficult with regard to keeping my head above water. My wife has been pretty much consistently in an angry mood and it has been a constant challenge to remain calm and patient in the face of a seemingly endless barrage of complaints and criticisms.
And yet, this is precisely what I signed up for. This is the nature of relationships and there’s nothing wrong or unfair about it.
So, I’m here to confess my resentment.
I’m here to confess my self-pity. I’m here to confess that I’m not blameless, stainless and that I have a part in her misery.
May I do my best to guard my heart from aversion, cultivate love and reflect constantly on the results of my kamma.
