We often underestimate people closest to us because well, we live with them! We’ve seen them weak, temporary insane and more. In other words we’ve seen them in all of their glory which is not always a good thing. It happens to me all the time. My husband will try to give me a bit of advice which is sound by the way and I would barely listen and always have something to say or worse intensely nod while thinking about a pair of sunglasses I’ve been thinking of buying. Hence the snippet of convo below:
Me: “Two more pimple on my chin. Great!”
Hubby: “You should lay off the make-up for a while, you know, let your skin breathe.”
Me: “How would you know? No offence but I’m definitely not about to listen to someone with a one-step skincare routine telling me what to do with my skin.”🙄🙄
Hubby: “Well, maybe that’s why my skin looks so good…”😏
He obviously has a point so I leave the room quickly in order to save face.
Two seconds later…
I hop on you tube and some random chick says to go without makeup for a while to let your skin breathe….🙄
Me (go find hubby and announce with great pride): “You know, after watching (insert random You Tuber name here), which I follow by the way (Couldn’t exactly tell him I’d just picked up this ‘life saving tip’ from a random You Tuber), I think it’s important to let my skin breathe…so I’ve decided to go without makeup… at least on weekends…😏😎”
Of course, I leave the room as quickly as I entered because I just realized what I’ve done. I usually let an hour or so pass before making any sort of eye contact…😋😉.
But then again he does it too and this is something I’ve come to accept as part of growing old with someone. Still, I think it’s important to realize when it’s being done and call each other out which dear husband does very well by the way.
Do you do that too with people close to you? Let me know in the comments and don’t forget to like or share this post!
Bisoux and talk next week😘🐍
