Have you ever mouthed off to your partner out of frustration out of the blue and you get out what you want to say and then come off the anger quickly? The hard part about that is that sometimes when you do that your partner’s feelings are hurt and they stay sore for three days or more.
What can make it worse is actually when your partner pouts about it and suddenly you get even angrier and the cycle starts over. Then you even forget the reason you spouted off to begin with. And the thing that really gets to you is that you feel that you can’t voice an annoyance no matter how small without hurting your partner’s feelings.
I have a couple suggestions. It’s important that you consider that your partner can’t read your mind and it’s important to voice frustrations in a way that your partner can hear them. This tends to help because when you mouth off out of the blue and spout off without warning, your partner isn’t able to hear you. You also need to consider whether or not you are in a frame of mind that will allow you to be able to express yourself in a way your partner can hear you.
