Why Do I ALWAYS Have To Be The Voice Of Reason?

My spouse has this desire to be me sometimes...they will say, "I wish I could be more like you"....this is because whenever there is a problem to deal with I have this way of putting things in perspective that serves to make my spouse stop their behavior and look at things differently...They will say, "I feel so selfish" and I tell is okay to feel selfish as long as you understand the other possibilities....Whatever happens it can always be worse, right?

I sometimes wish I didn't have to be the voice of reason...It would be nice to just say, "You know what, life sucks and that is just the way it is"....I have a difficult time bringing myself to do that though, so I decided to rant about it.

the truth is you like it. you like to be the go to guy.
the one everyone leans on, depends on. thats why you developed the behaviours that show this way.

you rant about it now, but really this feels like you telling us you want to be our voice of reason too.

your need to be the one will sometimes be hard to deal with but its is who you are.

if you are sick of it (which i doubt) change it.

nothing is set in stone.. except.. stone i guess...
