Out of seemingly nowhere we both erupt with claim and counter claim, each accusing the other of being selfish and not taking the other seriously. I hate it when such vitriol surfaces so suddenly, casting an air of gloom over the day and threatening to unravel things that have taken years to weave together. Then, just as abruptly, the heat goes out of the situation. Calmer minds reassert themselves and we both step back from the brink of something we’d really rather not contemplate. And while it takes a while to normalise things again the sense of relief is palpable.
