I was the sort that made plans.. and planned on not failing.
No room for mistakes or curve balls.. Even if there was a curve ball thrown at me, I would make that curve ball fly straight..lol. Everything (or at least 90%) on my checklist must be checked. Very stressful, I know.. but that’s the purpose of a plan, no?
On the other hand, Blueberry is my complete opposite. He lives life with minimal planning and goes with the flow (or curves with the ball).. He calls it expectation management, I call it- a disaster.
Our differences drove us mad. We fought.. We made up. Then we fought some more.
Eventually, we got tired of the fighting.. We decided to compromise; find a common ground where we could both work on.
He agreed on better planning and checklists.. and I agreed to detour and curve with the ball, when the need arises.
Ever since, things have become better.
Falling in love is easy.
Staying in love requires courage, communication, care, compromise.. and the list goes on. Goodness, marriage is tough!
When the efforts result in love and harmony, everything sown in is worth it.
