You tell him when he’s being a big baby
When you must, you tell your partner when he is straight up wrong. You tell him when he’s being lazy, when he’s doing the wrong thing, when he’s messing up, and when he’s doing something he’ll later regret. You tell him this even if it means he’ll be mad at you for a while. You don’t mind being the bad guy for a minute—you just want what’s best for your partner.
