I am a pastor-wife?
How’s that make my life different?
Let me tell you.
I am no longer able to show all my expression openly. I have to be very very careful to see whether what I say or even my body language would make other people offended. Say that in my position, people are more sensitive. What consider okey for a common member could consider not okey when goes to me.
I am no longer able to save sometimes off whenever I like. No matter how tired or how much pain I felt, when the church member wants me to be present, I had to. No excuse nor objectives. Sometimes I tried to ‘run’ and their feedback could burn your ears.
I dont even able to claim my husband as mine. When I am sick or lonely and want him around, I just had to let him go on his duties.
How do I feel about that?
Okay for me. When there are no complaints.
Not okay for me. When there a lot of complaints.
