I'll tell you what's ironic. Being upset about something when it doesn't happen and then being upset when it does!
Here's the example:
A couple weekends ago I came home from the gym to find my husband cleaning the house (gasp!) I was immediately a hot mess. I was anxious/angry/apologetic. Not the reaction one would expect. Why, you ask? Well I am usually the one who does the cleaning, so I felt that if I had cleaned the house as I should have he would have no need to clean. Also I have a certain way of doing things and perhaps he was doing it wrong. The ironic part is usually I sulk around the house upset because no one does anything to help me!
Belle has talked about this on her blog and podcasts and it sure rings true for me. Who would want to help someone who acts like this?
On another note, here's a short clip from Dr. Phil about his decision not to drink. I love Dr. Phil and find this quite interesting.
Speaking of Dr. Phil...last week he had a guest on his show who was drinking hand sanitizer all day long to get drunk. It was quite scary and moving.
