Is 'Living Large' Bad For Your Marriage? - Strong Women, Strong Love
We all fall prey to it sometimes: The feeling that we should do more, be more, have more. We all face pressure to be 'living large.' Maybe you succumb to it when your sister asks what you're doing to help your teen get into a high-ranked college. Or when your friend shares pictures on Facebook of the dream vacation your family can't quite afford. Maybe photos of beautiful decors on Pinterest have you looking at your own house with critical eyes, or an upcoming class reunion makes you wish you had more career successes to brag about. There's nothing inherently wrong with any of those pursuits, of course. The problem comes when we start chasing such goals without even asking ourselves whether we truly want them and how much they will truly cost us.
