I have recently come to the realization that I might be a selfish person.
I always thought that my father was selfish growing up, but I didn’t think that I was going to turn out like he did.
However, after having a long conversation with my wife last week. I think I might be a little more selfish than I thought. For the past couple of months my wife and I have been getting in more fights than usual. They aren’t serious fights about anything important, just little ones here and there. However, the fights are really getting to my wife. We had one really bad one last week over the HVAC system. We haven’t been able to agree on what temperature to set the thermostat on. I know that fighting over the thermostat is really dumb, but it was like we couldn’t help but fight. I told my wife that if I didn’t get my way I was going to move out. Even though I didn’t mean it, my wife said I couldn’t say things like that. Especially if we are just arguing over the thermostat. HVAC isn’t a real reason to fight or end our marriage. I know that I was being selfish when I said that and I am going to make a big effort to change my ways. I don’t want my wife to ever think that I would actually leave her over something as dumb as the HVAC system.
