Compromise. It is not always an easy thing to do.
I’ve learned throughout my almost 11 years of marriage that most problems are resolved through compromise. It was not an easy lesson to learn and it is most certainly one that I have not perfected. Despite my increasing flexibility when it comes to compromising, there is ONE thing that Kevin and I will NEVER see eye to eye on because neither of us plan on meeting half way.
Curious yet? I'll tell you. You know I'm not too embarrassed by much. Here it is:
Yes my friends, Kevin and I cannot compromise on toothpaste. He’s a life-long Colgate guy and I’m a devoted Crest girl. I have to give him credit, though. The brave man did try at one point to convert. However, it didn’t last long. His Colgate devotion runs too deep.
Downside: I continue to buy our own separate toothpaste.
Upside: I don’t have to nag him about putting the cap back on.
