Getting along better with Mike. Realizing the parallels between cohabitating with someone as an adult and my crappy childhood of fear and self loathing. Whenever anything with Mike and i isn't going perfectly, which is always because we are human, I get all wound up and angry because I just want to feel safe and secure in my home. I feel like the rug is being pulled out from under me and I wait to be betrayed. Then a certain 5 year old poltergeist starts stomping her feet and having a temper tantrum and I become unbearable. Usually at this point Mike starts gettign frustrated with me and says something vaguley unpleasant about whether or not our relationship is going to last- which reafirms my negative irrational beleif that I can never be in a happy relationship with anyone. Now that I can name the situation and be aware of it and calm down at the beginning instead of letting myself get all wound up, i stop myself from creating the tantrum and I ususally find a way to talk to Mike about what he is doing that is bothering me. It;s better when I let the adults handle things.
