Crushing day

My girlfriend decided to unload on me today. I don't want to get into details, but basically she made me feel like a failure. Why does it seem like loved ones are often the ones who cause the most pain and suffering for us? I suppose it is the fact that they should be the ones who help the most, so anything negative is amplified. They are also the ones hardest to escape from. You can't just walk away and completely ignore them for long.

Anyway, I suppose some good did come from this. I was rethinking my life today, which I had kind of been doing recently anyway. This just made it more critical than ever.

I'm glad I didn't stay stubborn and completely refuse to change just because I was upset with my girlfriend. She never seems to understand that harshly criticizing someone just makes them defensive and more unwilling to change.
