I’m aware that I have never fully upheld my end of the partnership. I’ve tried, and I’ve failed a lot. Consistency is not my forte. And sometimes it’s good for me to be reminded of that. But sometimes it really bothers me when that’s just your go-to, without any regard for how you’ve managed your end. Surely, neither of us are perfect, and we both have regrets. I feel like that setup is guaranteed to generate constant negativity.
Just this once, let’s try something else. Maybe it will help. Tell me about the time I said or did something that made you the happiest, and I’ll tell you the same.
