{Editor's Note: Audio was repaired 11/2023.} So much of life is not what happens to us, but how we respond to it. Life is hard and it never seems to go exactly according to our plans. My grandad said that we all have the choice to either get bitter, or get better. And he lived out what it looks like to get better, even in the face of all of life’s troubles.

Today Dr. Kim shares what ongoing bitterness looks like over time, and how we can avoid becoming grouchy, grumpy, and mean! 

Episode highlights include: 

  • How to know if you’re becoming more bitter 
  • Practical steps to help you “get better” instead
  • Tips for dealing with the difficult people in your life 
  • This week’s anonymous listener question leads to a memorable story from one of Dr. Kim and Nancy’s recent dates 

 

We pray this episode is helpful to you and your marriage. 

 

P.S. I misquoted his age in the episode - my grandad lived to 94½ before he went to heaven last year!
