Unfair I may be, but I’m not
quite certain of that fact.
It’s hard to be objective when
you judge the way I act.

I hurt your feelings, so you say,
but do you care for mine?
Your constant criticism leaves me
feeling less than fine.

You tell me I don’t like you much.
I’d say the same for you.
If this is liking me, I wonder
what dislike would do.

In honesty, I must admit
my attitude needs work.
I’ll like you a lot more when
you’re a lot less of a jerk.

In other words, your attitude
could use some labor, too.
Am I the chicken or the egg?
Who hatched this: me or you?

I’m sure we won’t agree on that.
I guess we’re in a pickle.
You think I suck. I think you suck.
Can we meet in the middle?

Find the intersection.

 “All married couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love. Good battle is objective and honest – never vicious or cruel. Good battle is healthy and constructive, and brings to a marriage the principles of equal partnership.”
Ann Landers

“Living with anyone for many years takes skill. To keep peace in the household, couples learn to adapt to one another, hopefully in positive ways.”
Diane Ackerman
