You: “The bathroom light. He never turns it off when he’s done. Drives me crazy!”
Your girlfriend: “Bathroom light? Try wet teabags on the kitchen counter. Yuck!”
OK, so he isn’t Mr. Clean or Mr. Oops-I-gotta-turn-off-the-Light. Yes, it’s annoying. Yes, you’ve told him a zillion times, and yes you wish he’d get it already.
So let’s see – when he (or you) leaves this mortal plane, what are you going to say: “He never turned off the bathroom light” or “Oh, how I miss the way he held me”?
It’s all a matter of perspective. Keep your love-life in perspective by letting go of the little things and you’ll have a lot more time and energy to enjoy the big ones.
