When SiriusXM was offering its free trial, I signed up so I could listen to you again (I used to listen when you were on AM radio). In just a few weeks, I realized how miserable I've been and what it has done to my family. I have been acting like an entitled brat.
My husband and I had a couple of rough, stressful years. Dealing with depression and anxiety and strong-willed children put a strain on our relationship. Bitterness in me built up, and I wouldn't let myself be happy. One call you took changed all that. I decided when I heard it that I was going to be happy and appreciate whatever I had.
As a result, my husband and I haven't argued for weeks, my kids are happier, and we are all getting along much better. I had been working weekends, and when I got home, I wanted to rest while my husband took care of the kids. I got grumpy and irritable when that didn't happen. Now that I've been off the last ten weeks, instead of making it all about me, I ask him what I can do to help make the weekend easier for him. And we're having the best weekends of our marriage. Thanks for your wisdom and your courage to speak the truth.
