Not everyone makes decisions the same way.
This month’s positive point in working with a couple happened when a woman’s partner surprised her by purchasing a household item she had wanted and for which she had been asking. She heard, “No” several times before the “No” turned into a “Yes.” The “Yes” was a game-changer for her. Even though she initially heard a rejection of her idea, her mate taking the time to process her idea and agreeing with it meant the world to her.
The beauty of this situation was that this woman didn’t chase after her partner to make it happen. Her mate initiated purchasing the household item on his own.
The lesson in this anecdote is that not everyone makes decisions in the same way or with the same timeline in mind. Sometimes one person needs processing time. If one mate is an enthusiastic, snap decision-maker and the other is a slow processor and takes longer to make decisions, contention can be the result.
The key here is to be patient and allow life to unfold.
