I am willing to bet that most of you have been frustrated with your husband/partner for at least a moment or 2 today. Some of you have probably had a big argument over him not using the right setting on the washing machine or over whose turn it was to change bub's poopy nappy. A few of you might have had screaming matches and some may have just given him the silent treatment. Whatever it was, you are not alone.
No matter how much you love your man, there are always going to be times when you just want to kick his lazy butt! But this doesn't make you any less of a wife/partner - it just makes you real. I am not going to lie - there have been times when I have looked forward to my husband going out bush. But I still always miss him and am happy to have him back (and he probably looks forward to getting away from me!). Sometimes, the best thing we can do is to let out our frustration to someone else. And on occasions, the only avenue we have to do that is through Facebook. Now I agree that there is a difference between having a harmless vent and airing your dirty laundry and I think that as a general rule, most women I know abide by that. I know so many of us feel better after being able to let it out. I was once watching an interview with one of my favourite musicians. He said that he always gets asked why his songs sound so sad, angry and depressing. His answer was that when he was down or had a problem, his way of dealing with it was to let it out through song. If he was happy, he went out and enjoyed being happy and he didn't want to waste that time by writing about it. His angry songs didn't mean he was an angry person, just has having a vent about your husband/partner doesn't necessarily mean you have a troubled relationship. I think that if there is anyone out there that thinks their relationship is perfect and doesn't have anything to vent about, then they are only lying to themselves. I don't envy them for their so called 'perfect relationship', I just feel sorry for them.
Ugh. I better go an clean up what whatever mess my husband has made while I was writing this!
Until next time,
