Day One was difficult

As I said in the last two posts, today's dare was to say nothing bad about your partner. It was a tough challenge for both of us. We did great for the first few hours and then hit a road block when we went grocery shopping. Grocery shopping tends to be a bit difficult for us as it is and there are many seemingly innocent things that can throw either one of us off. Today was one of those days where it was more difficult. We both said and did things we shouldn't have but because we have been in this rut for so long it has become a gut reaction. BUT, and there is a bright side to this, having this dare in mind helped both of us to walk away and in the end it did not escalate as much as it could have. Another bonus was that we were able to calm down just a little bit quicker. This is something that we both have to work on a lot but we are off to a (semi) good start.

I'm looking forward to finding out what the next challenge will be!
