And this is why I think learning how to communicate effectively, while not treading on egg-shells, is important. This stuff can easily ripple into other areas of the relationship. It's not always easy, but it's worthwhile. I notice those moments when I have to discipline my mind to not fall into 'old habits' and he does the same. It's much easier to stay comfortable than to challenge oneself and attempt change. But what you learn about yourself (as well as the relationship) by embracing the changes necessary, is completely beneficial.
