Mutual Concession

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

When you usually obsess about the details and your partner doesn’t want to be bothered with anything but the BIG PICTURE, you learn the art of mutual concession: the arduous yet graceful movement towards the moment when each of you say, sige na nga. Oblivious to matters that freak you out, he sails through it all with a nonchalance that makes you wonder why, to begin with, are you freaking out. When he cannot see the point of being punctual at all times, you shrug and accept that he marches to the beat of his own drum and no matter what you say or do won’t make him follow yours. With impassioned discourse, you two disagree on things banal and potentially vital, but in the end he’ll concede: do what makes you happy, honey.
