Happier at Home
Day 3: Make the positive argument.

"In general, people are very skillful at arguing a particular case. When a person takes a position, he or she looks for evidence to support it and then stops, satisfied. This mental process gives the illusion that a position is objective and well justified. However- and this is the useful point- a person can often make the very opposite argument, just as easily."

I completely agree with this. Instead of thinking a negative statement, turn it into a positive. There are examples for both the positive and the negative, but isn't it better to think of the positive? Patrick is constantly saying he's not romantic (or not romantic enough). This is a negative statement. In all honesty, he's not the most romantic man in the world, but he is romantic. In my opinion, I believe he thinks to be romantic he has to do something over the top, like roses and candles and all that. To me, romantic is when he kisses me for no reason, or when he writes "143" on my car window, or my favorite- turning the channel to American Dad every night at 10pm. It doesn't take much for me..
