As a wife, it is so easy to become involved in various activities that we can actually become very unapproachable because we become so distracted with life. So how can one become an approachable wife? A wife that promotes communication within her marriage and who gives her man the attention that he needs?
Becoming an Approachable Wife:
Women typically are unable to simply separate things that are going on in their lives. It is hard to set clear boundaries because to us everything loops together in some way or fashion. Of course, this causes us to feel stressed and overwhelmed at times, Ultimately these feelings are then presented to our families and mostly our husbands. This begins to make us unapproachable. Of course, it doesn’t have to be this way.
Ways to Become More Approachable
- Focus: When your husband comes home we need to be able to focus on him. They need to know that we are there to talk if they want to. Now, this doesn’t mean that we don’t share about our day as well. However, it does mean that we need to remove any distractions that may steal our attention (but not the children because well they need to be part of daddy coming home as well).
- Clear your schedule as much as you can while they are home: I will work from the time I get up to the time I go to bed if I am left to my own judgment. So doing this has been something that I have had to be really intentional with. If it is something that doesn’t have to be done I will push it to the back burner. This means that I am more available to spend time with my husband and my children as well.
- Listen more and react less: In order to be approachable, our men need to know that we are willing to listen. They need to know that we aren’t going to always react to everything they say. Therefore, we need to actively listen to our men so that they are being heard. (Yes, this is hard)
- Eagerly seek them: So often our men feel like we are too busy. So they go about doing other things. However, we can turn that around by simply showing a bit of effort. We need to seek them just as we did when we were dating.
These are just a few ways that I have learned to be more approachable and have helped my marriage. I pray that they help you as well.
