If Mama Ain’t Happy…There’s Something More Important

  • If mama ain’t happy, ain’t no one happy. True.
  • Also true…If your child ain’t happy, ain’t no one happy.
  • It’s hard to be happy when the people around you are not happy.
  • Your responsibility, though, is not to make everyone in your family happy. If you try to do that, good luck! Talk about trying to hit a moving target.
  • Your responsibility is to make sure the relationships around you are as good as they can be.
  • How can you do that consistently? Be able to answer “Yes.” to these questions when it comes to your relationship with your spouse and child:
    • Has all conflicts been resolved in a way that you both feel good about?
    • Have both of you said all that you want to say?
    • Do both of you feel understood by the other?
  • Care more about the relationship than about the current emotion.
