Why I allow myself 20 minutes a day to hate my husband, by Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker has discussed the unconventional secret behind the success of her 14 year relationship. The 46-year-old star admitted that she coped with married life by allowing herself 20 minutes a date to ‘hate’ her husband Matthew Broderick.
The actress was chatting with Ryan Seacrest on his KISS FM show when he quizzed her about comments she made earlier this month about allowing herself moments of rage. “Some people have it down to 20 minutes a week. Other unfortunate people have it down to 20 minutes per hour.”
But she insists she doesn’t always require the allotted time. “In my life, we go many, many days without 20 minutes of bitterness.” And when asked what her secret to such a harmonious family life was, Sarah added: “You work really hard for many years and the overwhelming feeling is of good fortune and appreciation – so how else could a person behave if you are so lucky and fortunate?”
How else could you behave? How about being happy, thankful and blessed?
In church Friday night we talked about developing positive spiritual habits. Pastor Jeremy spoke of “focused thinking” and how we tend to do that with negative issues yet we should be doing that with our positive experiences, including them in our prayers. I feel sorry for anyone that admits to allowing time to hate on someone, especially a loved one. But if that method of coping with the overwhelming feeling of good fortune works for her, so be it. I’d prefer to be happy and content with all that God has given me in life.
