What No One Tells You About Your Newlywed Years (Ft. Manda Carpenter)

hey there

 

Did you have an unhealthy view of marriage growing up?
                            Do you rely on the attention of men to fill you up?
                                                Do you ever feel that you are the worst wife on the face of the planet?

Sister, YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

As I stepped into marriage with excitement in my heart and butterflies in my stomach, I was hit with a bit of harsh reality right away during these first, few years.

A reality that no one told me about ahead of time – but wished they had.

As ‘normal life’ began settle in after the big day, I began finding myself losing my cool one, too many times with my husband. And then I started to feel SO badly about myself. I began to think,

‘I know I’m the only one dealing with this. I can’t talk to anyone because they won’t understand.’

Turns out, I was wrong. I wasn’t the only one.

And neither are you.

And just to prove to you that you aren’t on an island out there in newlywed struggle land, I’ve brought in some back up for this episode. Meet my dear friend, Manda Carpenter. She’s an author, speaker, coach, and happens to be one of the most real and authentic people you’ll meet.

In this episode, Manda and I open up about the early years of marriage. How marriage is the best decision we’ve ever made – and also how we found ourselves struggling with what we assumed would magically go away once we had both those rings on our fingers.

Example? Manda keeps it real when she chats about how she still desired the attention of other men – even after the ceremony.

WOAH. Talk about some honesty. And relatability.

Because the truth is,

The lies that you believe before marriage, will also be the lies you believe after marriage.

So sister, strap up for this one. You’ll learn:

  • Why marriage didn’t solve your problems (actually, it probably magnified them),
  • Why marriage is so worth it even when it doesn’t feel like it,
  • How to keep your anger under control during arguments,

 

….and maybe even feel that you understand your man a bit more.

I wanted to have this conversation because I don’t know of anyone else that is. Newlywed years are hard, but so worth it. And we are here to remind you of that. And just how not alone you really are.
