Make an appointment to write. If something was bothering me, I realized, since he said I had a big mouth, I had to find alternatives. So I would actually tell him, so it's something is bothering me. Whenever you feel it's okay, I would like to talk. And at first, it was very hard because he didn't want to face those kinds of things he wasn't comfortable with. Let's sit and talk. So those are things that Alhamdulillah we've come a long way because right now he'll just say, hey, come, let's talk, however, then he would sometimes take about a day or two, inside, I would be burning with anger and I want to blow up. But I kept controlling myself and focusing on the fact that I want a

It douses the flames, it just makes you feel a bit more intimate. And it's hard for conflict to come. It's hard to sit next to somebody when you're really mad and you're hot. Yeah. So and sometimes when I take a day or two, I'm trying to calm to put out the fire. Before we sit down, have that conversation. And by the time we get to the point I'm also mentally prepared not to allow anything that she may have said out of anger or frustration, annoying me. So you mentally prepared, I'm not going to get angry. I'm not going to get

00:02:12--> 00:02:25

upset. I will filter out the annoying or irritating phrases or words and just try to get to the crux of the matter and address the issue. So that is why sometimes I by the time
