Five ways to not be a nagging wife
A nagging wife is a destructive wife
Being a nagging wife is destructive to your marriage, your family and even to yourself. When you nag your husband, you are sending him the message that:
(a) You don’t respect him
(b) He’s not good enough
(c) You think yourself better than him
Receiving these messages consistently will cause your husband to give up on himself and your marriage. That’s right--a nagging wife can destroy a marriage with nothing more than her words.
A nagging wife can destroy her family by sending the message to the children in the family that Dad is dumb, incapable and doesn’t deserve their respect. Children raised in a home where Mom is consistently nagging Dad are consistently the children who treat others rudely, who are selfish and demanding and who have difficulty in relationships.
A nagging wife destroys herself by denying herself the joys of a happy marriage. The wife who nags is so busy finding fault that she fails to see the good in her husband and enjoy the love and affection he would like to show her but can’t for fear of rejection and criticism.
Whoever said ‘sticks and stones…but words can never harm me’ didn’t know what they were talking about. Bruises heal but the words that pierce our hearts and minds don’t ever completely go away.
