My husband and I were in a furniture shop last week when he overheard 2 ladies talking whilst a shop assistant was trying to advise them on several purchases. My husband laughed and retold me what one had said to the other “I wish my husband liked cushions!” We couldn’t stop laughing.
I am sure we are not the only household that experiences this. The female part of the household, namely me, loves soft furnishings and decorative accessories like candles and cushions, whereas my husband cannot see the point of them.
Once upon a time I used to feel guilty and defensive of my love of household accessories and would get irritated at his lack of interest in ‘making our home look nice’. Now we both find it very amusing and I can relax into buying as many candles and cushions for our home as I please, well, nearly.
Why the change?
I used to think that we all saw things in the same way, that any differentiation was just down to taste, and so it was my job to ‘improve my husband’s taste’.
Now I KNOW we can never see things the same way. Everything we look at, touch, feel, taste or hear is interpreted through thought. So it’s not even possible to experience anything in the same way. EVER.
Understanding this insightfully, not on an intellectual level, has a radical impact on your close relationships, as it has done with me. Now we laugh and embrace our differences. Well, most of the time anyway.
If you struggle to embrace the differences in your partner and find it is causing problems in your relationship, then I am offering a handful of people a special “Reignite The Love & Connection In Your Relationship" 90 minute Breakthrough Session (£299 value) for ZERO COST.
