In this home she does something I would never, her do to her. She closes her ears and fumes.
Maybe that doesn't sound as bad as it is, but I assure you that it's atrocious. If I'm livid with you over even the most justified of situations, I am still always willing to listen to you explain yourself because I don't actually WANT to be angry with anyone.
She doesn't do that. When she's angry with me, she stays angry at any cost. That way she can continue to treat me like shit. She calls me stupid, she accuses me of terrible things, she insults my intelligence, integrity and personality, she destroys my property and she's even abusive.
But that's all okay, she's entitled to treat me this way when she's angry. As long as she stays angry she can call me all the names she wants, she can bitch to all my friends and relatives all she wants because she's angry.
I would never put another human, let alone the woman I love through such pathetic childish and unnecessary attacks, especially if there was even the slightest possibility that I might be overreacting.
Especially since listening takes so much less effort than staying mad over nothing at all does.
I'd give anything for her to learn this truth, but FaceBook only lets you write 400 words.
