As humans we’re bound to get in tiffs, spats, arguments what have you. Somehow we’ll manage to rub each other in the wrong way, frustrate one another and at one point disappoint the other person. It happens whether we do it intentionally or not, we find ourselves either pissed off or we piss our partner off. Not one of the most fun situations to be in, but one that does occur and often.
Even with breakups we can easily find ourselves in that place where we are deeply frustrated, we can feel wronged and downright outraged. When these scenarios arrive the other person involved is typically thinking “Can you just forget about that?” Especially when you find out your guy/gal has once again forgotten your birthday, caught them checking out that hot person in the office on Facebook, or forget all about that dinner reservation you two had planned weeks ago. While you’re ready to begin a full fledge World War III, they’re begging that you develop a slight case of amnesia.
I’ve found that there really are some things that are just worth letting go. Especially after a break up and you find yourself lonely again, thats when you begin to ask “Were all those fights really necessary?” ”Did I really need to hold a grudge that long when what I could’ve done is spent that time sitting next to my partner with their arms wrapped around me?” Most of the time we soon realize that the drama just isn’t worth the invested energy and emotions. However when you become overly comfortable in a relationship you take the other person for granted and so the excessive fighting continues.
There really are those times that we should just forget about it. Grant it when we’ve really felt wronged, forgetting about it may not always be a realistic option. But for the petty stuff, let me remind you that its not worth it. Forgetting about it and moving on may serve you far more then you realize. A moment fuming, angry, disgruntled over a tender precious moment of being in your lovers arms feeling safe and loved, well you decide. It’s not rocket science if you ask me. Despite how much you think you have to have the last word, the truth is what you really need is to be touched and reconnected with your partner. Not separated by division.
So… Can you just forget about that?
