There is a saying in the military, “Never leave a man behind” which should be applied to a marriage. There will be times in your marriage when you are growing or moving faster than your spouse for a variety of reasons. However, if you keep your spouse in the dark or leave him or her behind then resentment has the opportunity to grow and take over your marriage. You will then find a new resentment for your spouse for not appreciating your growth and your spouse will resent you for leaving him or her out of your growth. As you learn more about yourself, include your spouse in your understanding and if needed help your spouse to grow with you.
