One of my favorite shows growing up was What's Happening!! For years I was told that I looked like Roger. Unfortunately I don't have a picture handy to prove it, but back then it was true.
Anyhoo, in that vein, today kicks off what will become a weekly occurrence: What's Happening!! Wednesday. This email will let you know what's happening with Marriage Works! in terms of events, sales, new resources, free items, and stuff about our family.
Using the picture above as a backdrop, let's assume that one week ago today the male trapeze artist was late with his swing, and missed catching his partner's hands. As a result, she fell to the net.
If her partner had a history of not catching her, it would only make sense that her trust in his ability—and perhaps his willingness—to catch her would begin to erode.
Still, if she is committed to being his partner, there's only one way to rebuild trust: put herself in a position to give him another opportunity to catch her.
While she definitely wants to keep practicing with the net, and probably should make other adjustments, she still has to give him an opportunity to catch her.
This is the only way she can rebuild trust in her partner.
