Have you taken it personally when your spouse came home in a foul mood? Have you ever been in a foul mood yourself, but not communicated about it well to your spouse, leaving them to wonder why you were so grumpy?

Today we talk about some of the common breakdowns (it’s not just you!) and ways to handle this more effectively.
