There’s only one thing you can do when you fail: carry on.
There are going to be tough days.
There are going to be times when you’re upset.
You won’t be in top condition, and you’ll be short. You’ll snip. You’ll snipe.
Your wife will be the unwitting target.
It isn’t her fault, she just got caught in the crossfire.
All you need to do is give yourself permission to have a do-over.
Apologize to her, shake off what is bothering you.
