Why Does it Matter? (Connie J...)
Say you're talking to your significant other, and you express how you feel; and they basically tell you that you are wrong, or misunderstood what they were saying.
What follows can set the basic tone for your relationship, almost - do you just laugh it off, and say you were just being paranoid; or do you end up in a near-fight trying to get your point across?
Then, they say those words, "What is the big deal??!"
Before you do just blow it off, I encourage you to take a second, and ask yourself, "Why DOES it matter? Is it something I NEED to investigate, further; or CAN I let it go?"
Even if it IS a fleeting feeling; your feelings ARE valid. I know I used to let a lot more go than I should have; and overreacted on other things. Now, I have learned to "pick my battles".
Remember, it's also okay to "shelve" the processing until another time - which takes practice, not to react in the moment.
Keep in mind, that life IS a process, and it can be frustrating, at times; but your feelings ARE valid. If you continuously defer to your s.o.'s feelings, this may be something you need to investigate, further.
Maybe you need to figure out what "matters" - is it you?

*I share a "What If..." post on the first Monday, of every month, and I would love the opportunity to share YOUR "what ifs". Please send your "What If..." ideas to Connie J... - firstname.lastname@example.org; or through Ozer, at the website or email, email@example.com.
