I’ll tell you what’s up with that, every time I say MY husband, I am reminded of the bond we have. He is mine and I am his. MY love means he is no one else’s, just mine! It is beautiful.
Using MY children is unifying too. MY son, MY girls, MY helper, MY beauty….they all speak from my heart to their heart. Each time I say MY they know I own them and want to be associated with them.
So the next time your husband phones you, excuse yourself from the room by saying, “Excuse me, this is MY Honey calling.” Let your children hear you brag, “MY son helped me build that. Or MY daughter baked that.” Adding a endearment like sweetheart, love, honey, cutie only multiplies the power of the word MY. Try MY.
