I gotta say
familiarity breeds contempt in those persons who are contemptable
works for me as a standard.
As far as in relationships, I dont think you have a good one if you cant dually respect and take into consideration the other.
as far as the fishin thing....(fisrt I must say that neither of us has flaws..just to be clear right up front,its odd but completely true
yeah, the chinese thing..you know what..its food, doesnt make any difference to me that he doesnt eat it, doesnt stop me from eating it either...whats the big deal? Nada. Others could make it a huge issue, it really isnt.
vibrant colors...well dangit, its my house and Ill live the way I want to...if there was someone else living there, I would take that into consideration, but there isnt.....besides, once fishin actually got used to the orange sherbet/pumpkin color room..he doesnt mind it all that much and might even consider living with it I think...so, you know..I could explore the eggshell white thing as well. fa la la blah..its a color, again one of those things you should find joy and laughter in...but just MHO.
You should pick your battles and simplistic reality makes most items in a realtionship ... well, workable as long as you yourself arent contemptable, or searching for such.
