Facebook Question: One person neat, the other person messy … How do you meet in the middle?
Is it Possible? Neat and Messy in Harmony.
He left the empty ice cream carton in the sink again and didn’t wipe off the counter! Believe it or not he’s not out to make you mad … he’s just not wired that way. (Neat and Messy are not gender specific.)
Recognize: The first step to harmonious living is recognizing that we do not function alike. Acknowledging and respecting that the other person was created to think on a different track than you is imperative to getting along.
Middle Ground: When you are serious about living in harmony with your spouse, you would be surprised at where you are able to compromise. Be willing to negotiate, a peaceful home is a more productive home.
Diversity: Embrace the differences in your home. Everyone brings something good to the table. I’ll admit I’m still working on this one. What a deal! Everyone’s happy.
Real Problems: There are times when the issues are serious and change is required. If the actions are affecting safety, job performance, financial obligations, or emotional well-being the situation needs to be addressed immediately. It is not about assigning blame, but about correcting the problem.
It really is possible for the organizationally challenged to live in harmony with the uptight organizer.
“If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.” Roman 12:18
