one of those days
Today has been not one of our best. I could feel the tension rising for the past week and we've not mastered the art of diffusing situations before they become a problem. We certainly know what to do, we've been told many times but still can't pull it off.
My Mr has been withdrawing all week and communication has been difficult at times. The level of irritation increasing. All signs that all is not well.
Sometimes I'm good at being calm and understanding then there are others when with everything else going on in life I get cranky, easily. Just human really.
We are both as stubborn as one another so the arguments can go on and on.
PTSD can be so destructive on relationships. We've taken a pounding.
Time to hug a pup I think.
How do you know when you're about to fall in a heap at home?
Do you have any strategies that you use when you can feel the tension rising or your partner withdrawing?
