I have been feeling down lately, due to a combination of the old hormones and lack of sunlight...and the coming doom that is winter.
I wrote a post about how I was upset that my fiance hadn't really done enough to bring me up out of this mood... but then I deleted it. I wrote it in a low stupor, and it was not a rational piece of writing. It's funny how moods can affect your rational thinking. I was relying on him to do something to cheer me up, and I was upset that he hadn't.
I know this is wrong, and so after writing a long post, too-ing and fro-ing about why it's wrong and then why it's ok too, I ended up googling "should women rely on men for happiness". And basically, the answer I got was no. (Of course not, men don't solely rely on women to cheer them up!)
And then I came across what appears to be a journal article written by a christian marriage counselor. And what it says I could totally relate too - in a much smaller context.

It really is enlightening. If your not a christian, It still speaks volumes!
