Last week I talked about not knowing how to keep my relationship fresh, fun and moving forward. In my exploration on making sure I don't take The BF for granted to often and get stuck in a rut (which I think is what I was trying to say then). I learned a few things about me that I didn't like but I am unsure how to fix.
I realized that I don't apply all my special skills and talents to my relationship that I should. Not those kind of skills...those skills I use often (sorry mom), I am referring to patience, empathy, sympathy, listening and problem solving (its what makes me so good at my job). I am really good at all of those things unless you are taking about my relationship...I tend to leave all those skills at the office.
I have no idea why I do this. These skills come in handy at home as much as they do at work.
Is it because I do it all the time at work and I then to tired to do it at home?
Is it because no one is paying me to do it at home? (That's an interesting idea).
Or is it because until I started typing this post I never thought..."Hey start being as patient with The BF, mom, sisters, "pseudo" step-kids as you are with your clients."
This is not going to be easy.
I am not a very patient person.
I really just want everyone to do what I tell them to do when I tell them to do it without any argument. I don't thinks that is to much to ask.
