My husband can vouch that all I ever do is nag. Not only do I nag verbally and constantly, I have discovered a new way of nagging - leaving post-it notes on the bathroom mirror. I guess this was the last straw for the hubby because he made a point to tell me that the more I nag, the more he won't do what I ask him to do. He wants to do things (chores) on his own terms. This was hard for me to accept because when I want something done, I WANT it done RIGHT away!!!
I have been able to let go and loosen up a bit. I don't think that I nag as much anymore but I could be wrong. What I learned in this chapter to help quit nagging:
- Use one word reminder. Instead of nagging exactly what needs to be done, I'll just say it in one word but I'll say it nicely in a sweet voice. Well, maybe I'll say it in two words, Garbage please!
- Just do the task myself. Instead of nagging and asking repeatedly, I might as well to do it myself. By spending that time nagging, whatever could have already been done.
