I'm getting much better at initiating conversations where I feel something needs to be addressed. This is due to a number of reasons:
1. I feel calmer and clearer mentally, and can sustain a conversation with a little emotional weight to it better than before. My diet, vitamins/supplements, and medication all help with that.
2. Due to the success above, I feel confident that I either won't fly off the handle or will be able to re-route myself and apologize if I snap a bit.
3. My husband is a better listener than I thought ;). I believe that me taking care of my issues makes it easier for him to listen to me.
