Take Time To Honor Your Partner . . . You Aren’t The Only Person In The Room
Preoccupied, I marched in, turned mute off, TV blared, partner rose, stomped out, later said I was blind, could not see. That was correct, my apology accepted I berated myself, then began thinking why it happened.
Neither of us wants to be treated this way, as if our partner is invisible to us, or anyone else in the room, or sitting at table with us.
Dad said, “Courtesy is the oil in all relationships.” He also told me to pause before opening my mouth. This also applies to jumping off the edge of a cliff or doing anything. What I did was let the oil dry and could stop my treasured love relationship.
I would not do this with a stranger, would you?
I did it with my partner, do you?
Nuff Said !!!
