Are you married but lonely? Most people who are single, think that if only they were married or in a relationship they could escape their feelings of loneliness. So much so, that their loneliness has yet another painful element — rejection. So what should you do when you feel lonely in your marriage? How can you stop feeling lonely in your marriageand how can you stop just surviving and really experience joy in your life? There is hope. And as I am not aware of your specific circumstance or journey of your lonely marriage or relationship, I can tell you about how my marriage went from a very lonely one to one full of friendship, companionship, and life.
There are many ways to begin this journey of fighting for your marriage. On my blog, I address many issues that arise in marriages.
To name a few:. Rebuilding Trust in Your Marriage. How to Stop a Fight with One Phrase. What a Man Needs from His Wife.
What a Wife Needs from Her Husband. Today, I want to specifically address those of you who feel lonely in their marriageand what YOU can do to begin your journey of what to do when faced with this very harsh reality. I first want to address what marriage is, and what defines a healthy relationship. Marriageas God intended it to be, is a mutual bond; commitment to one another that brings forth life and joy. Right now, I am specifically addressing those of you who are married. The two should be addressed very differently.
If there is no presence of abuse — both emotional or physical — then your marriage is worth fighting for. A common side effect of getting married is losing yourself in one another.
Some people get married before they even figure out who they are. They put all of their eggs in one basket — their marriage — hoping that their feelings of happiness or fulfillment will come from that. I have a lot of resources on growing personally and spiritually. After ten years, we feel hardly qualified to give advice on the ins and outs of marriage. If you need some good ideas, check out this guide on growing deeper, and a creative list for date nights.
Over time, if you are both willing to compromise, you will find something you both love to do together. Because only God knows the true pain you are experiencing from being married but lonely, only He can bring you the comfort you need. In my loneliest of days, the one thing that got me through was knowing God would never let me go.
Instead of trying to change your spouse to make them who you want them to be, pray for them. Pray for your marriage and surrender control to the only one who knows the future. In order to make sure you are doing your part in meeting the needs of your spouse, read this.
Also, check out my workbook for couples HERE! Make sure you are giving your marriage everything you have.
Usually, when we do this, amazing things happen. Selflessness, even in the face of loneliness, is something to be admired. If you can rise above your feelings of hurt and rejection to serve your spouse, they will see this. It usually brings about change in their lives and actions, knowing that you are giving your all. You are responsible for your own JOY. Joy is associated with contentment. To experience contentment we first have to arrive at gratitude.
That means you can acknowledge the good things in your life, accept the bad, and experience joy because of it. Joy is a choice, and happiness is a result of that choice.
But joy is something derived from Jesus. This is the only true and lasting hope for our lives as Christians. We can read all of the self-help books we want. But nothing compares to removing ourselves from the picture and putting total dependence on Christ.
You can receive it today and now, knowing you have everything you need within yourself — Christ and His unrelenting love for you. Hillary Gruener is a wife, mother, writer, and musician.
