rule #0: listen to your partner

It’s that simple. That person knows you best. Period.

I know this should be self-evident, but sometimes I need a map to see the simple truths standing right in front of me. Thankfully, my partner is my best friend, so she doesn’t hold it against me.

Whatever self-indulgent or self-recriminating nonsense I might be telling myself, my wife can see right through it. Whatever mule-headed idiocy I might be putting myself through, she can call me on it.

True, it’s not always what I want to hear, but I can’t think of a case when it wasn’t what I needed to hear.

Thanks, love.

  1. First, you are so welcome.
    Second, I need to remember that’s my rule too.
