Don’t expect your spouse to change. Focus on yourself.

Attempts to make your partner change invite defensiveness. That strategy will get you nowhere. Think about it: when was the last time your spouse made meaningful change just because you nagged them.

Instead, use your energy to figure out what you want and then what you yourself might do differently to get it. New mindsets. New skills. A tweak in a schedule. Change in words you use.
