The other morning, David got up early and left the house while I was still asleep.
I could tell that he’d been in our bathroom, by the way the towels were BARELY hanging on the rack. MINE, on the other hand, was neatly folded in thirds with all the edges straight across the bottom.
(Yes, if you’re wondering…I AM a little bit OCD!)
Am I the only one? Does it drive you CRAZY when people do things differently than you?
You’re probably thinking that I should’ve been happy that he even TRIED to hang up his towel at ALL! But, the fact that it was just haphazardly thrown up over the towel bar still BUGGED me!
Sometimes, I catch myself thinking, “I wish my husband was MORE LIKE ME.” But, actually, it’s our DIFFERENCES that really make our relationship work!
Opposites DO attract!It’s probably more my nature to make sure nothing slips through the cracks. I’m more of a “detail” person.
But, it’s David’s talent to be THE LIFE OF THE PARTY by acting as the pressure valve that helps me keep my SANITY!
I might ACT like I’m irritated at his well-timed “silliness”, but I actually love and appreciate all that he brings to the table. He just makes life more FUN!
(He had me at “hello”! lol)
We can stop being annoyed! Instead, celebrate all those quirky DIFFERENCES in others that add so much value to our lives!
Just like Jerry MaGuire… they totally COMPLETE us!
Are you in a relationship with someone who’s personality or habits are totally OPPOSITE? How has that been an advantage to you?
