Use Mistakes to Deepen Trust & Intimacy

Utilize all that happens as an opportunity for growth. When your spouse makes a mistake, you have a chance to be compassionate and sensitive. You have a chance to judge favorably. You have a chance to fulfill the mitzvah of loving another person as yourself by treating your spouse the way you would wish to be treated when you make a mistake.

You have a chance to communicate love and concern. You have a chance to elevate your power of speech by helping to alleviate any distressful feelings over the mistake, instead of adding to it.

Think of the wonderful possibilities!

(From Rabbi Pliskin's book entitled "Marriage" - ArtScroll Publications, 1998, Chapter One, p.58)
