Chances are, you and Bae are similar in a lot of ways. Maybe you both like movies, maybe you both hate going to the club. What I can almost guarantee, however, is that there are differences that drive you both insane!
Understanding this one concept (wait for it) can make a major difference in your relationship: God created your partner to be different than you....on purpose! Think about the major differences in your conflict resolution styles, how you approach household chores, etc. and try to find the beauty in the differences. For example, I like to mitigate issues very shortly after they occur and am not a fan of wasting time being mad at each other. Bae, on the other hand, prefers to have alone time and only addresses the conflict when he's ready to - usually hours or days later -_-
Though frustrating at times, this difference makes us a stronger union. It makes me more patient and it makes him more proactive when it comes to resolving conflict. What's important to note is that we choose to view it this way. I encourage you to think about:
1) What major differences can you identify between you and Bae?
2) How do your differences make you better individuals?
3) How do your differences help to form a stronger union?
Discuss them with your partner and again, choose, to celebrate them.
Until next time...
