While packing for a move I have turned up are books, terrible idiotic books filled with toxic advice. One of those books is by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies ‘How to Encourage Your Husband’. I think I ended up with this book in the aftermath of leaving my old church, given to me by one of my former friends that thought it would ‘help’ my marriage since in her eyes my husband leaving our old church meant that I wasn’t doing my job of wife well enough. Reading through this book now I cannot help but laugh at some of the suggestions. The book is entirely written by commenters and comments from Nancy Campbell’s website.
Last one in this chapter and it’s by Nancy herself.
We have two chairs between our kitchen and dining room, one for my husband and one for me. Colin’s is the most comfortable and I often sit in it, but if he walks in the room, I immediately vacate the chair to show respect to him. Anyone else sitting in the family who sits in his chair will also get up immediately he comes into the room.
Colin also has his chair in the lounge (British/Australian English for Living Room) by the fire. Anyone sitting in this chair will get up immediately if he comes to sit in it.
Would it not just be easier on everyone to have the chairs be the same, as in the same comfort level and avoid all this sit down and get up again? Is this really respect or just some archaic family habit?
Next week we start on chapter 2 – Verbalize—Your Words Have Power!
