The "Birthday Fight" Every Couple Has Experienced
Of course, the movie version of the next day looks like this.
There it is, the dream: whatever he gives isjust rightand whatever she getstotally delightsher. Wouldn’t that be beautiful? But, no.
More often than not, the “Show Your Love” exchange doesn’t go well and both sides end up unhappy: she feels disappointed or unloved and he feels frustrated with the impossibility of getting it right for her. And it leads to distance or a fight – just the opposite of the point of the day.
Why does this happen so much?
Because we were all kids once – and we know what birthday magic is…..
Your birthday is your special day!
Today you are the star!
Get ready for EXCITING SURPRISES!
The magic doesn’t totally wear off as we get older, so plenty of adults are still looking forward to the surprises that will come on that special day, especially what will come from a partner.
But for many partners, the expectation to be the “birthday planner” puts the anvil of expectations on his or her back.
