As with many of these blogs, the following thoughts are intended as guidance for myself, but writing them down and sharing them here is, I hope, of use to others. However, please do not be under the illusion that I have the strength and wisdom to follow my own good advice at all times.
I write down these things so that I may remember, in the more challenging moments, that I do know what to do and it is possible to be a great version of myself with all my flaws and imperfections.
With that in mind, here is a very wonderful statement for a couple to say to each other in the morning before anything other words or thoughts spill out.
Please forgive me
I love you
