I just finished the washing of the dishes. I’m not a big fan of that task. It has to be done though. There is a benefit to chores that I am a fan of. I get to think about things, usually, unmolested (don’t be a creep).
As I washed said dishes, I thought about my slip up and why I hid it from My Bride:
She already has a pretty low opinion of me. Why on earth would I give her MORE of a reason to think poorly of me? That would be insane! I’ll just keep it to myself, if she doesn’t find out, we are one day closer to healing our marriage.
That is, of course, bullshit. Hiding things from her is precisely what got me in this position to begin with. A man with integrity would not hide things from his wife. I want to be known as a man of integrity. Time to put away the childish things and act like a man. There’s something in the Bible about that somewhere.
