Finding it hard to forgive something “stupid” your partner did?
Don’t we all do stupid things at times? Both my hands are going up! On my ‘Love Doc’ slot today at 8:05 AM with Angela and Spence on the Heart Northwest and Wales breakfast show we’re discussing stupid things your partner has done that you still can’t forgive.
Because we all do stupid things - and partners get very annoyed - I have three basic steps to getting passt our negative feelings…
First off, begin by reminding yourself of the last stupid thing you did before being too judgmental about your post and what they did.
Next you really need to look at the bigger picture - how many great, good, loving things has your partner done compared to this stupid thing?
TODAY’S TIP: Finally, and probably my biggest tip: is this supposedly stupid thing your partner did holding so much power in your thoughts because actually there are other stresses in your relationship?
It’s easy to grab hold of one incident that stands out when actually there are other issues you’re grappling with like arguing over the household budget for the children. The so-called stupid thing they’ve done makes an easy target to aim your anger at.
Hope after little food for thought the next time you face this in your relationship.
All the best, Pamx
