It’s interesting how many times we do things we don’t realize we are doing.
This is another aspect in which I personally had to wake up and seriously change…Once I started observing myself with respect to this, I noticed how annoying I was and what’s worse is that my complaints were not getting me anywhere besides irritating him…
Have you stopped to observe yourself on this aspect?
It’s those famous phrases…
· You always forget to take out the trash!
· The dirty clothes go in the hamper not the floor!
· You never put down the toilet seat!
· You never put the cap back on the toothpaste!
By doing this we sound more like a mother than a wife and partner.
“Starting today you will begin to observe and eliminate any unnecessary complaints that serve only to irritate both of you.”
Many people that I have counseled with respect to this have told me that after they stopped complaining, their husbands began to change and really do that which they had asked!
