Confession

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.
