    Alisha Perkins: We All Fall Down

    As many of you know these last few games for Glen have not been his best. He has made a few bad pitches and unfortunately they happened at the worst possible times. Up until this point in the year he had been perfect,literally 100% perfect in every save opportunity, and of course everyone was loving it. But as we know no one is perfect except the great man above and it was destined that at some point that he would fail just like every other human being on the planet.

    Again, at home we tried to make the best of a bad situation and use it to show our kids that even the best of the best fall. We told them that Daddy would rise above and succeed again, and that the world may demand perfection but sometimes all you have to give is your very best which might not always be impeccable.

    A lesson their daughters will remember long after Dad has hung up his glove.

    GMP: How not to get mad at your wife. 

    There is nothing like having or witnessing a near death experience for identifying what is really important in life. Fighting with my partner is not high up on my list of important things. No. Not even close.

    But I do get angry with her at times. That is life. So how do I not get angry with my beloved? After the incident at the restaurant and my appreciation that my relationship with my wife is finite, I made a decision. I stated, in her presence, that I was not going to be angry at her anymore. When I said this, something amazing happened. A look of relief and joy came over her that, as I think about it now, makes me sad. She said that she felt released from a certain anxiety. Like she had been nervous, trying not to incite, not so much my anger, but my judgement or criticism. I do know where this comes from – old family of origin stuff. This declaration not only made her feel relieved, it also freed me. Even though my way of being around this issue was mostly unconscious, I am now more aware and have a felt sense of being less worried about what is happening in my environment, and specifically, with how my wife is doing any task. I may get angry, but I don’t get angry at her. What I mean by this is my anger is no longer directed at her. I feel the anger, express it to the universe, or not, and realize that it is my anger and nothing more. I have the choice of what I do with it. I choose not to direct my irritation, frustration, and anger at my wife. 

    Making the choice to accept her for who she is, and to make a commitment to get a handle on your anger, are definitely good bits of advice. Still, deciding to never get mad is unrealistic. Husbands and wives are humans, and humans bump into each other once in a while.

    So when that fails: When you do get mad – and you will from time to time – don’t let it stick. 

    The Missus and I also found this helpful.

    Tell your wife or daughter she’s beautiful from time to time. Or some other guy will.

    Instapundit: THE ADVANTAGES OF MARRYING YOUR OPPOSITE. Yep, though Dad feels the best marriages have similar body types. Sharing similar values (faith, child rearing) helps overcome the rest.

    Update: Money opposites usually attract too. This will help somebody a lot.
