Every couple has tiffs once in awhile and we are no exception. They are rare and we get over them very fast (totally new territory for me) but conflict management is essential in a relationship. Last night we had one such tiff which I felt was dealt with in a very healthy way.
Mr. New is one of the most caring people I know. In fact he can be so caring about me that sometimes we differ on how to deal with things. Last night we had a wonderful time going to Otis and Henry’s to sample the new menu they were debuting. The event was cutting it close to my bedtime but I figured I would be tired in the morning but vowed to leave the event no later than 6:30 to get to bed at a semi-normal time. The event was a total blast! In fact I was eating and chatting and having so much fun that I lost track of time a bit. 6:30 came and went and so did 7. Mr. New kept gently reminding me that I had to be up early in the morning and I needed to get to bed. I was having so much fun that I disregarded my original plan and kept on going. Of course he was right and I suffered for it all day today being so tired. He was certainly a little upset at me that I didn’t chose to leave at a reasonable time to get home. I know it’s only because he cares so deeply about my well being that he wants me to get enough sleep.
Regardless I wasn’t in the best mood either when I left knowing I was having so much fun and had to leave. We spoke little on the way home but Mr. New still made sure to pull into a gas station to get some gas for my car knowing I was low and had to drive to work in the morning. When we got back to my place he still made sure to set my coffee out for the morning and leave me a note on the door. He kissed me goodnight and said “I love you”
Even though we had a slight disagreement he did everything to show me how much he cared. This morning my daily note said the following
“My mouth may get me in trouble sometimes. I promise I will be better. But I will never apologize for how much I care about you. I love you”
