Life Tip #45

It’s okay to walk away, just be sure to come back.

One of the reasons that I think my marriage has lasted 25+ years is that when we get in an argument, we know that it’s okay to walk away mad. The trick is to make sure we come back, and the sooner the better. At some point someone has to be the adult in the room and approach the other to begin resolving the issue in a calm, reasonable manner.

And if my wife doesn’t look like she has any intention of being the adult—this time—guess what? That means it’s my turn.
