It’s been one of those weeks, everything is going great in life, seems almost too great. Of course this is the reality of life.
You know the minute everything is in synch that something is about to fall out of sync. It’s a double edged sword, I know I try to appreciate the great times in life, trying not to even think about something going a stray.
So this week, my little writing passion took a big leap forward, my employment I was asked to commit further hours, my daughter is as happy as can be, my relationship is great, both of us having mental health issues it can be rocky at times.
That is of course what happened, both of us feeling exhausted & emotional took what the other said the wrong way.
However neither of us really thought about what we were saying & how the other may interrupt what was said. We are like chalk & cheese in many areas in life, the way we think is no different.
I am overally emotional, my partner can seem very unemotional, this can rub the wrong way.
We love each, respect each other, we generally communicate well. We don’t take each other for granted, we appreciate each other.
For me I learnt a lesson I already knew, we both did, we just needed to be reminded.
Think about what you say before you say it, when you are reactive & emotional. Take the time to think how the person reading or hearing it will interrupt what you have said.
If both of us had done this, we would still be waiting for something to fall out of sync.
Just for my two cents, even when you do argue, make sure your partner knows that you still love them, your life is with them. An argument can really bring out insecurities.
