Why do we take out our frustrations and anger on people we love the most? Why do our children act like angels in front of strangers, but when they're home they're having meltdown after meltdown? Simple answer: loved ones are a safe space to let it all go. (Or so we hope). ▪️
We believe that they hold unconditional love, and so we let our crazy get out of hand because we desperately yearn for them to temporarily save us as we attempt to keep our shit together for the outside world. ▪️
I was a shitty partner this last week. I was tired, grumpy, and burnt out. Every free and spare moment I had that should have been spent with family, I snuck on my phone to continue working.
I'm working to do better, and to be better, but mainly because my partner helps me to strive towards that. I am so grateful for his understanding - he is not quick to anger, and he works hard to remain supportive without judgement. He went out and bought me this day/month planner to help assist with my stress and need for constant planning. He helps me realize I'm being crazy on my own, he doesn't even have to say it. 😂 ▪️
This is the tip of the iceberg as to why my husband is amazing. I could go on and on - but I'll save it for our upcoming 10 year vow renewal 🤘
Tell me what makes your partner amazing! It's so important to show gratitude to the people who experience our worst selves. ▪️ #partnersincrime #husband #bestfriend #thankful #grateful #momlife #sherwoodparkmom #yegmom #fitmom #partners #wife #luckytohaveyou #shpk #sherwoodpark
