In today’s episode, we are discussing how your healing is not dependent on your husband’s recovery. This conversation has wives in mind that have been on this road for several years now and there is still a good bit of relational conflict in the marriage.  In our next episode, we will talk about practical tools you can consider to care for yourself while he is still moving toward solid emotional health. For today, we are talking about what it means for you, that your healing is not dependent on his recovery.

We Will be Discussing:

  1. What kind of situations and feelings can come up for a wife when his recovery is slow going?
  2. Let’s talk about the concept that a wife’s healing is not dependent on his recovery.
  3. What hope can we leave a wife who is in this situation?
