"There must be times when you disagree with with each other, and can't come to a compromise, how do you resolve those times?"
Compromise!!! i dont think that word is in his vocabulary, not in regards to me lol
No, thats not strictly true...well maybe, depends....
As much as i think communication is important, and it is, sometimes it feels like no matter how much we talk something through, nothing is resolved, its simply that we disagree, that our thoughts are so different, and perhaps more so that he cant understand what im getting at, and vice versa.
It reminds me of that dress that went viral a few weeks ago, some people seeing blue and black and others seeing white and gold.....thats us sometimes, we are seeing the same 'dress' but different 'colours'.
I dont consider it a big deal, nobody can agree on everything all the time, you can try very hard to see the other persons point of view, and respect it, but it doesnt change what you think. Sure i could just agree with him, say what he wants to hear, but he doesnt like it, and he doesnt want that, but it does mean that depending on what the 'something' is one of us has to give.
And its generally me, not because i have backed down and had a sudden change of opinion or even agree with him, but because i respect his decisions, and i trust him to make ones based on what he thinks is right, for me, for us.....plus if he makes the wrong decision/choice its on him not me, ahh sometimes having so little responsibility can be a good thing!
Would i hold it against him if it was the wrong decision/choice? no i wouldnt, i might perhaps be a little "well i did try and tell you xyz" but that would be petty on my behalf, so i would settle for a look of smugness instead :).
