I can be bossy. I can admit it. In my case I’ve been doing everything myself for so long that it’s just innate. It feels awkward to wait for a man to open the door for me, if I get there first I automatically do it.
In past relationships I believed I played both roles very well. I was starting my own business, but still cooked, cleaned, and played wifey on occassion. That was my first mistake! I played wifey and submitted to a man who wasn’t my husband, to prove that I could.
I’m at a place now where I believe I am closer to finding balance and know my place as a Christian woman and a future wife. There is the misconception that submission equals being a door mat, maid, or weak, but there’s power in submission.
Don’t get me wrong, marriage doesn’t mean that your business or ministry must fall to the wayside, but we must understand that in a Christian household, there are roles that God has put in place.
Are you bossy? Do you have any insight into the subject?
