The Art of Fighting

Don’t get this week’s Dustinland wrong: I don’t really fight with my wife much but of course there are a lot of little things we rag on each other about. And it’s all fun and good when that happens, even if once in a while it gets a little serious. The problem lies when little arguments are constantly springing up in place of bigger ones. You see it in unhappy couples. Lots of little bickering about nothing, that comes out because they’re both trying to hide the real issues that are making them unhappy. Sometimes I think everyone can see it except for the people doing it. But that’s life — it’s so easy to see when other people are making mistakes, but so hard to notice it in yourself.
