I quarreled with Ben again. He seems very bad-temper these days. I just start my own on-line business today, I hope he can give me useful suggestions. Though he is very enthusiastic, his expression way makes me depressed. I hope to get encouragement, not critical criticize always. In fact, from his point of view, he is right for he is sincere to provide help for me. But I still couldn't help my anger. have you been angry with your partner just because of his improper expression though it's not deliberate?

If it's just his expression that seems to be unenthusiastic then it would be easier for me to get past it, I think. If his tone of voice and expression both seemed to be off, I''m not sure that I would be able to get past that in order to be happy about any sort of success. Best of luck to you in terms of your business, and I hope he's able to let his energy shine through, for your sake. Encouragement is good for everyone, and if he supports your ideas, hopefully he'll find a way to let you know.

I actually get this way with my husband quite often. I'm not sure what it is. He just doesn't show much and whatever he shows always seems to be in a negative way in my eyes. And when I say something about it, he tells me he wasn't trying to make it seem like that. It would be like he just didn't know what to say and so that was the face that ended up coming up. I try so hard not to get angry but just like you I just can't help myself. These days I just try to walk away and breathe for a little bit before saying anything to him or try to think of what I'm going to say before I say it to him. Especially if I pretty sure he won't know what to say.
