Let it Go, Let it Flow: 7 People You Should Pick Your Battles With

- By


You have a special way of doing things, keeping things in order, and even cleaning things.  You get married and you never really think about discussing how your spouse does these mundane things, but you wish you had when you start getting aggravated by how they load the dishwasher incorrectly, how sloppily they do laundry, or how they don’t feed the children the way you want them to be fed. One’s first notion could be to address the situation.  However, usually when people feel nitpicked and criticized for doing something to help you out and you still find a reason to complain that could plant the seeds for resentment.  A lot of times, in marriage it becomes a power struggle on deciding which person could get the other to conform to their way of doing things.  However, to have a peaceful marriage, it’s all about picking and choosing your battles.  So what if your spouse washes the dishes a certain way?  Are the dishes still getting clean?  If so, maybe that’s not an argument to initiate.
