Back when I was a kid growing up with my family I was blessed to have parents that were extremely loving and kind to one another.
While there are so many cool and special things that come with growing up in a loving environment, as I got older and found a partner of my own I assumed that getting along with one another would happen as quickly and as naturally as it seemed to with my parents. Well, all relationships between partners are never the same and we have had more than our fair share of conflicts up to this point. One of the most heated arguments we have had during our entire relationship happened when we needed to decide whether we were going to repair our old air conditioning unit or if we were going to replace it. I was leaning heavily towards just replacing the unit due to the fact that neither one of us had much or any skill when it came to fixing things, however for some bizarre reason my partner was dead set on doing a DIY HVAC repair. I can’t even tell you how many articles and interviews I showed her online from HVAC professionals talking about the danger of doing HVAC repairs on their own without professional supervision, nevertheless she pushed on about hw idea was better. I ended up giving in eventually, and now after a botched DIY HVAC repair we are now looking for an HVAC contractor who can help fix the problems we added to our situation. While my partner and I still get along great and she usually has a good instinct when it comes to things like this, if we would have gone along with my idea we would be much better off than where we are now.
