Bitterness can lead to many problems in a relationship. I have noticed that when I 'react' with bitterness the result is bickering. My solution to this bickering is to keep my 'mouth shut' for only about 10 seconds.Then the tendency to bicker is reduced. The bitterness can be replaced with something of my own choosing, like thought. The question at this point of pause is, "How or where do I want this to go from here?"
Knowing that I am responsible for my feelings I can respond to my wife in a way that makes me feel better. This in turn can defuse the tension. I have adopted this 'silent pause' as a tool of tranquility. I am always responsible for my own feelings and how I 'respond' to others.
