As we all know, today is Veterans Day. We gather with all the folk who are brave enough to walk the line, we thank them for their service and then mostly forget about them the next 363 days. I know that’s not the case with everyone but for most, it is. It’s rather shameful how some are veterans are being forced to live and how uncared for they are. I’m not a supporter of war but someone had to do it and these are people who stepped in. Make sure you give your Thanks, even if you don’t know the person, make sure you take care of those who took care of you. Alright, that’s all I’m going to say about that.
Today is also the hub and I’s 7th year Annivsary. Honestly, it’s just another day. We don’t really celebrate or do things for each other so it’s not all that special. However, I would just like to say that the 7 year itch (which I believed to be the want to sleep with other/) is for real, and it’s not quite what you think. The idea that the 7 year itch was based on wanting to sleep around is not exactly the case. This concept was brought on by the movie “Seven year itch.” Studies have gone to show that 7 years is the average for divorcing, and is believe to be caused by the brains 7 year “reset.”
So no I’m not thinking of running out for an affair but I can tell that I’m unhappy. I often question how I got here, why I’m here and an over all feeling of being lost or unaccomplished. It’s not the easiest thing to explain but as soon I heard of what the 7 year itch really was and the feeling associated with it, I knew I had it.
This is for all those people who haven’t reached the 7th year yet, you have to warned cause it’s sort of a bitch. My biggest suggestions to avoiding this are to never settle, always insure that your partner and you are growing and changing together. Life gets very complicated when only one partner changes and grow, this easily ends up in divorce. Make your time count, don’t just shrug the important things off, it’ll only hurt you in the end.
Talk! Talk a lot. Communication is a huge aspect of a good marriage and shutting down on each other isn’t going to help anyone out. Don’t forget to date and act like the crazy kids you were in the beginning. Smile because years of unhappy faces isn’t good for anyone. Remember to keep pieces of yourself, don’t give up all of who you are for someone else, it just won’t work.
For all those who are having the itch, know that your not alone and you can still have dreams and goals. You can still work your marriage out and you can still get back to feeling like a happy person….just don’t ask me how. Refocus your life, cut out the things that make you feel down, fill your partner in on what happening and cross your fingers I guess, that’s about the best I can tell you for now. Anyone out there in it or been through it? What’s your experience? What are you doing to fix it?
