Of the people who are close to you, who is the person most unlike you? What makes it possible for you to get along?
The one person that is closest to me that is the most unlike me is my husband. We are like total opposites. We don’t even like the same TV shows or music, other than Scandal, but who doesn’t like Scandal? All our differences, of which there are many, aside he balances me.
I am impatient, controlling, and I have a horrible temper. My husband is cool, calm, and semi-collected lol. He tends to have a much cooler temper. He keeps my family alive on visits by adding water to my overheating temper. He is very laid back and patient. I am high-strung and impatient. He can be a flake, which is where my need to control things comes in handy.
Don’t get it twisted though, he does have the tendency to drive me insane. That laid back crap can work a nerve. Like today, he is off. The first thing I did this morning before I even took my son to school was pull the comforters off of the beds and get at least one in the wash. I was hoping he would take a hint get up, finish stripping the beds, or at least sort the laundry. He didn’t do that. He instead laid in the bed watching ESPN. Then he didn’t understand why I was a little miffed to find him laying in the bed when I came home. So annoying.
What is it that they say about opposites attracting? I think they are on to something there. It works for us. I couldn’t imagine being married to someone just like me. Two control freaks can not share a household. Not a healthy one anyway.
