As a man and a husband I was always trying to sort things out. I had to smack my head against a wall to get around this or that problem. Because that's what a man is "supposed " to do.
I found letting go of the "supposed to's" extremely helpful in being able to let go of my resentments, which enable us to start to re-define and repair our marriage. Still a major work in progress.

One thing I did think about was getting more open minded altogether.
this also helped me become all around a happier person.
