I used to think I knew how to love my wife and raise my kids. I was an expert on the subject.
Then I got married and realized I have no idea how to do either one.
I have spent the last 8 years of my life learning how selfish and lazy of a person I really am. I had no idea I was so self-centered.
The thing that keeps me coming back to make an effort again and again is that my wife and kids love me no matter what. I’ve made a lot of mistakes, but they’ve always been forgiving and loving.
The truth is, I don’t love my family enough, starting with my wife. She’s truly amazing, and I’m determined to focus on how to love her more.
