  • Selfishness. Every person tends to think more about him/herself than about the other person. When the opposite is true--when each person is more concerned for the welfare of the other than for his/her own welfare--things tend to go a lot more smoothly.

  • For me, I am having a hard time adjusting to my husbands mood swings when his finances aren't going good. He can go from being wonderful to a smartass bastard in a matter of a few minutes and it isn't fair to the rst of us who have to put up with it.

  • My boyfriend becomes withdrawn when he is stressed out at work. It ended up breaking down his marriage and his wife left him for another guy. So with me, he is trying to be different and communicate better when he gets in these moods so that I don't take it personally. I'm a lot different from his ex wife because I understand corporate life better than she because I've had a career all my life. But there are the occasional hurt feelings because I've misinterpreted his moods. But we've communicated well and have gotten through them successfully.

  • He's a farmer which is 24/7 7 days a week and 365 days a year.... we hardley get anytime together and sometimes he isnt real wise with his spare time...Im at home all day with our kids and pregnant and I get lonley.... He also gets very stressed with money and work issues and sometimes takes it out on all of us and he is very moody...... I have learned to be more accomidating to his moods so we dont fight as much but its hard and I think I make alot of sacrifices for this realationship, but I owe that to him right now because he did the same for me for along time!!!

  • Different problems seem monsterous at the time it's happening. Inconsideration bothers me more often than anything else I think.
