Reflections on 9/11 – How an American Service Attitude Can Help Repair Broken Relationships


This weekend I watched the movie Lone Survivor with my husband and teenage son, and it was a great reminder of the military service provided by our fellow Americans on this 9/11 remembrance.  The movie and an attitude of service to others gets me thinking about service in general, and how Americans can apply an attitude of service in all relationships.

Here are some facts to support the fact that Americans already have a great attitude of service.

  • America thrives on a SERVICE-oriented economy.
  • America’s military is a powerful force to be reckoned with.  Yes, men and women protect our liberties and SERVE our country well.
  • On yesterday’s anniversary of 9/11, there was honor and appreciation shown for the SERVICE attitudes of our police, firefighters, and military.
  • The diverse religions that make up America all encourage an attitude of SERVICE.  For example, Christian scripture narrates Jesus modeling humility and service when he washed the feet of his disciples at the Last Supper.

We owe it to our romantic partners and our children to transfer our SERVICE attitudes and skills right into our intimate relationships at home!  What makes me excited about the concepts within Relationship Repair is that families can role model for children the service skills that they will need in the adult community and in the business world.  Therefore, the interchangeable skills of Relationship Repair can be used to increase American success in business, community, and family life.

You might be thinking – what about people who have not had business training in customer service?  How will Relationship Repair help these individuals  transfer business skills into their personal relationships? To answer this question, consider that Relationship Repair also helps people transfer skills and communication that they see and hear literally every day as consumers.  And we all know there are few Americans who are not good consumers!

After all, people who get married vow to love, honor, and care for one another.  No one vows that they will love and honor their spouse except for when their spouse complains about them!  Instead, we vow that we will love and honor our spouse all the time, even when he or she complains.

So, I am suggesting that we have our vows say, “I promise to love, honor, and SERVE you” because I want you to know the benefits and JOY of Service in your marriage and personal relationships when you repair relationship problems.  To learn more about how to engage in Relationship Repair within your marriage and personal relationships please order my Relationship Repair Book today or Contact my Relationship Repair Shop for a Therapy Appointment.
