The Repair Myth
About the Guest
It is so easy to insert unrealistic hopes into our decisions and then experience disappointment. I keep hearing disappointment from parents in blended families because they thought marriage would repair or restore everybody's losses. Well, it doesn't. But that doesn't mean marriage was the wrong decision. You just had misguided hope within the decision. A stepfamily is not a repaired first family; it's a different family with its own challenges and rewards. Stress is not evidence of failure.
Have you ever made a decision and discovered it wasn’t everything you hoped?
