Okay, in my defense, years of observing my husband, men do have more upper body strength. I digress.

I suppose we have a different idea on the level of difficulties when it comes to being and staying kind. I think it’s a matter of practice. It’s hard because we don’t practice it everyday (God forbid we meet assholes everyday but it can be the case if you have an asshole boss). I think if we practice long enough, it will become easier. Almost second nature I think. I was once a short-tempered little Chinese firecrackers believe it or not. I’ve mended my ways because I realize it was ruining me and some of the relationships I cherish. Changing was hard but it got easier :)

I absolutely agree with the ‘no’. I haven’t got a kid yet but I’ve been practicing now. With my husband as my practicing target (please don’t tell him). I really hope I’m already super good by the time my first child is born…

I guess it’s easier for some than others taking into account the circumstances and all aspects involved 😄

Thank you so much for reading and for the good food for thought, Erik! I love our discussion! :)
