She's Always Right
Well, isn't she? Ok. I am not trying to patronize here. And I'm not necessarily talking about an argument either. But, if you know what's good for you.. She comes home full of anger. For what I don't even know. I listen for 10 minutes. She goes on and on. I try to break in and realize she is not even near done. What is going on here? How much more of this can I take? I need to interject. No. I must listen. She goes on another 10 minutes. I have things I want to say also. I can't get a word in. She says she is almost done. Ok. She's done.
I try to give advice on the matter. She doesn't want to hear it. What? But I had to listen to her rant and rave about it for half an hour so far. She says she appreciates how I listen to her. I am not sure I have a choice. Ok. I know I have a choice. And all she wants is to feel better. She says she feels better after she lets it all out. But I am not satisfied with that. I want the problem solved and done away with. She affirms that it is alright and all that she wanted to do was talk about it.
I push the issue knowing very well that she didn't just go off for all that long to have me be quiet. I begin to upset her. Now she is upset with me. What did I do? I didn't do anything. It turns into an argument. She says she doesn't want me to fix anything. She just wanted to talk. But now she is upset and that is upsetting me. We argue about it again. Now the argument is getting worse. What happened? If only I had kept my mouth shut and realized she is always right.
