-- 27 year old guy walks into his house and looks at his girlfriend. He says to her ...Oh great baby you found my keys! Baby, I am so sorry for throwing the dishes, punching my own head, and screaming that I wish I could kill your best friend. Please forgive me and give me a hug. She then cracks a smile, forgives him, and gives him a hug. This guy moves on about his day like all is well. What he does not know was that instead of forgiving him she thought to herself… Cool, now let me shut you up by hugging you, pretend to forgive you, and call my mother so we can strategize a plan to leave your psychotic ass. The sad scenario is much more common than couples want to admit, because perception always trumps reality.
We live in the golden age of distractions. Remember in high school when you'd walk out the door on a saturday night without even thinking about it. These days you can't leave the house without putting 5 different things in your pocket. The chewing gum, car keys, iPhone, mud runs, and smart apps keep the channels in our brain forever changing. BUT WHERE IN THE HELL IS THE REMOTE CONTROL! My point is simple. It’s easy to lose your stuff…period. But its not losing your keys and being late to work that ruined your relationship. It's how you handle yourself in a crises situation.
In your defense its easy to be crazy today. Losing your wallet is one thing, but losing your time is much more damaging. You'll never incorporate "look for my keys" time into your schedule. Remember that it’s only natural for people to obsess over lost time. Obsessing over lost time is when I think we're the most vulnerable. Thats when most people lose it and that's when you lose her. Only thing I can tell you is try not to flip out over lost time in front of your girlfriend. She will leave your crazy ass believe me I know. These days girls associate losing a temper with just plain losing at life. Learn to mask your nightmare of a temper at all cost. Don't let her know just how crazy you really are.
