1. Act like nothing happened; they are just as embarrassed by your behavior as you are and they want to move on too.
2. When in doubt, keep your big trap shut. If after think about something for twenty-four hours you still want to say something, do so focusing on the “what” not the “why”. What do you want them to do about it? If you can’t think of an actionable item, then it’s just complaining and that’s what a spouse (and a blog!) is for.
3. Diligence will always persevere over pettiness. Expend your energy working hard, not getting caught up in other’s drama.
4. You control your reaction to others. Don’t let them push your buttons. Just ignore them.
