Thankful In No Mans Land

#17. Thankful In No Man’s Land – The Key To Waiting For Your Wife

Thankfulness and marital separation seem like they'd go together about as well as oil and water... What could you possibly have to be thankful for when your life as you knew it has been thrown into upheaval?

In this episode, we're going to talk about three things:

  1. Why thankfulness is important and how it will help you navigate separation better
  2. Specific things you can be thankful for, even when you're separated
  3. What you should do when gratitude feels impossible

Whether you're celebrating Thanksgiving this week or not, gratitude is timeless and it has a direct relationship with how much confidence you retain as you navigate through your separation.


Because when you seek gratitude in no man's land, you refuse to let yourself be dominated by negativity - despite the discouraging, seemingly impossible obstacles that may lie in front of you, you can still determine yourself to seek humble thankfulness to combat your pride and keep your motives where they need to be.

I'm not saying this is the silver bullet that's going to transform your marriage overnight. But when you set an example of thankfulness to your family and perhaps even to your wife, even when life is difficult, that has very real value - and that's why we're talking about it today.


With much manly love,

    1. I am new to the site and wanted to thank you Stephen. I was having a hard time understanding why to be thankful and now have a much better understanding and appreciate the pain if you will.

  1. And thank you Stephen for all you do for me, the husbands, and all the families you help. I am so grateful for all the advise you share. I know there are no guarantees for my marriage, but your site and podcasts are so helpful. This one in particular helped me today, when I was feeling down.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, your family, and all the people missing their families.
