I've been sick for about two weeks now.
When I came back from PA, a few weeks ago, I didn't expect to develop an upper respiratory infection. I've battling this sickness for the past almost three weeks and I must admit, I've been sort of a bitch to my husband. If that isn't honesty at its finest, I don't know what is!
And, you know you've been there before. More often than not, we take out our bad mood on our partner because it's easy. They're the one who lives with us and who is around when we get home after a bad day at work.
Do I intentionally act like this? Hell, no. I'd like to blame it on being sick, but it's also my attitude. Being sick has nothing to do with my husband, so feeling the need to take it out on him is quite immature. And, yet, I do.
It's so hard to admit when we're wrong. It's so hard to just blurt out, "I'm sorry." As I look at my husband, the words want to jump out of my mouth, but I just can't say it. Do you ever feel that way? You feel like you should apologize, but something is holding you back.
This is what you should do after you've been a bitch to your husband.
1) Make him his favorite meal or drink. Does he love hot chocolate? Maybe a huge hunk of meat? Whatever makes your hubby's mouth water, surprise him.
2) Write him a note. If you feel as if you've unable to express your feelings in words, instead write him a note describing how you feel.
3) Give him a back massage. Has your man been feeling a bit stressed? If so, he'll definitely benefit from a back massage. Who knows, it could lead to something else...
4) Plan a day trip. You don't have to spend a ton of money, just a little to spend some one-on-one time with your man. Use this time to bond and get back to being your sweet self!
5) If you don't like any of these ideas, just apologize. If apologies are easy for you and you don't want to prolong your discussion, just say you're sorry.
