No one said it was going to be easy.
Keeping communication open in a relationship sounds like an obvious statement. It’s so important and it’s something that Candice and I feel so strongly about.
Yet we slipped. And you know what? I’m sure we will slip again on this long and exhausting parenting road.
It’s just so easy to snap at each other when you are tired. Easy to think that the other could be doing more. Easy to be blind to what the other is sacrificing. Forgetting to pause and appreciate them.
The truth is, you have to work extra hard to keep your relationship healthy when you have a child. Lack of sleep, lack of personal space and lack of time will eventually take its toll.
You need to take a step back and talk calmly to your partner about what you need and how you feel. Find out how they feel.
Do that and things will get better, real quick.
Listen. Appreciate. Compliment. Kiss.
