I completed my stressful interview yesterday and did (I think, I hope) awesome. My awesomeness still does not garauntee me the job though. I did the best I could and I prepared well so its out of my hands.
What was in my control though (and I totally blew it) was how I treated my poor husband through all of my stress. I was not nice. When I’m stressed I go from EVERYTHING is funny to NOTHING is funny very very quickly. For the last few days I was in NOTHING is funny mode and my husband was still cracking jokes and supporting me in his own way. I did not react well to this and treated him fairly poorly. Finally he had enough and the straw broke the camel’s back last night. He is mad. I don’t blame him one bit.
As someone who is super sensitive, I hate it when people are mad. I hate it even more when I have done something to make them mad. I feel the guilt. I was a jerk. As someone who is super annoying I also like to pester people with love after I make them mad to annoy them into submission.
I’ve said my sorrys and admitted my errors. But I think tonight calls for some banana bread. The husband loves banana bread.
I think I’ll use this recipe from Tasty Kitchen.
What do you do for your partner/spouse to make peace when you have been insensitive and a bit of a jerk? (c’mon we ALL have done it)
