No one is perfect. If we were, relationships would be easy. In fact, they’d be downright boring. Imagine never having conflict with your man. You ask him to take you to the mall for three hours, and he says yes. And doesn’t complain! You tell him you’re taking a trip to Cancun with your girlfriends, but he has to stay home with the kids the entire weekend, and he nods happily. Or, you just never have a difference of opinion ever. It would feel like dating a robot.
So, conflict is good. What matters is how you cope with the downs in your relationship. Through the BS and the drama, you still have to see the good in your partner. Even when he annoys you (he chews with his mouth open like a starving horse) you must remember why you love him so.
I get it; it isn’t easy. But you can do it! Here’s how to love your man through the good, the bad and the ugly:
Remember the good
You're driving me nuts! You scream before slamming the door. Ok. You got it out of your system. Now, breathe and think of all the times when your boo made you smile, laugh...just happy. This will help you focus on the good when the bad seems so bad. Photo Credit: Flickr.com/Francisco_Osorio.
