Again because falling in love satisfied you completely ----- you want

the

same satisfaction to last. No it won't.


Consequence? You might fail to recognize a good relationship because

your

partner isn't fulfilling the needs you should be fulfilling yourself.


Here's the truth: the right partner will fulfill many of your needs

but

not all of them . There are just some things your husband can't give

you:

you're self-worth. Your spirituality. Your inner happiness. These are

things you have to work on your own.


I've met lots of people who think they're dissatisfied with their

marriage. In reality, they're dissatisfied with themselves. I've met

lots

of people who think they're bored with their marriages. And they

complain

to the high heavens how boring their husband or wife is ---- when in

truth,

they're really bored with life.


Meet your own needs. Find your happiness in God. Find your niche,

your

calling, your destiny. And then share your joy with your spouse.


MYTH 5 : IF IT'S TRUE LOVE YOU WON"T BE ATTRACTED TO ANYONE ELSE


If you believe in this myth, you panic when you get attracted to

someone

else, questioning the authenticity of your love for your spouse.


One man told me, 'Bo, I love my wife. Or I thought I did. But then I

met

this woman at work. She has nice make-up. She smells nice. She wears a

pencil-cut skirt. When I go home, my wife is wearing a drab rag. Her

hair

is undone. She smells of vinegar. Gosh I am attracted to this girl at

work."


Being attracted to someone is normal ----- even if you have a happy

marriage. But being attracted doesn't mean falling into adultery.


Every time you think of the other woman, discipline your heart and

say,

'Home, boy, Home!' and escort your heart back to your wife. Because if

you

feed your attraction with fantasies and constantly think about the

other

woman, it grows. But if you starve your attraction, it dies a natural

death.
