“You Are Making Me Crazy!”
Here is the simple reality: we all have behaviors and quirks that make our spouse crazy.
Often they are small things such as leaving socks on the floor or the cereal bowl in the sink, but every time we confront them, we feel annoyed or frustrated.
I’ll bet finding the Wabi Sabi “beauty and perfection” isn’t easy at
Here’s a fun and light-hearted exercise to try with your mate.
1. Buy an oversized “I Love You just because” card.
2. In the card write a note that along these lines:
I love you. I need you. You rock my world And….you are driving me crazy. Every time you_______ (add just one behavior here), a part of me just groans…not again……And, I know there are things that I do that drive you crazy too.
3. So…here is my suggestion:
Let’s agree that for the next 7 days you will do your best to stop _______ and I will stop doing one thing that makes you crazy.
4. If at the end of a week we are successful, I will celebrate by _______for you. If we are unsuccessful, I promise to accept _______(socks on the floor, whatever) as one of your unchangeable, adorable quirks and try to never mention it again.
Let me know what happens!!
