But then, time goes by. You start to notice the “little things.” You can live with them, but at times they get your attention.
More time goes by. The “little things” start to annoy you. Do you sit down and discuss them with your person? Or do you let them simmer, just underneath the surface until they explode like a volcano?
Does your person change through time? Do the bad habits outweigh the good ones? Do you discuss them at that point, or just have out-and-out arguments, sometimes about those bad habits but mostly about the incidents created by the bad habits.
Now remember, your person is going through the same process with you. You now have little things that have become big things.
Will you ever sit down, discuss them and work them out? Or, will you do what 46 percent of Americans do and leave?
So, really think about what tests your love with your person, sit down with them and try to work it out. If you married your person, you promised for “better or for worse.” So, make it your intention to make “the worse” better.
Til next time.
