Some months ago, I bought a power bank. The mistake I made was that it was a white power bank I bought. Ordinarily, I’m always particular about some things. In this case, I was being particular about how it was going to get stained and scratched. I kinda regretted buying white because when it gets dirty, it was going to be obvious. When the stains were becoming more obvious, I had to deliberately ignore. The most important thing is that it is serving the purpose for which I bought it.

In life generally, people change. Life happens and many things creep in to our lives. Marriage does not immune us from these life challenges. Most times, our container, that is our body undergo certain changes, particularly the female folk. With child birth and all, there is often a level of expansion that alters our youthful feminine shape. In such situations, the question I’ll want to ask is, “what if the container is not as it used to be, what happens?”

I’ve heard, and I’m sure you’ve also heard that some men begin to resent their wives because they’ve lost the shape that served as the center of attraction to them when they were wooing them. They fail to realise that they are a major contributing force to the change. In situations like this, one thing we should keep in our conscious and subconscious mind is that the content is of more importance than the container. You would not because of the change in container discard the content. Know it that while you may not be the perfectly shaped man or woman you were before marriage, you are still that person of worth, value and importance your spouse got married to.

While you surely are not careless with your looks, work on yourself to increase your value base and upgrade your content and before long, the fixation on your container (your body) will fade away. Click To Tweet
