Don’t Let Snoring Tear you Apart
Snoring can either be a medical or a social problem. While you are snoring without any serious problems with your health you can be facing a social calamity with your family.Some people snore so loud that occupants of the nearest apartment or room can hear it. Getting embarrassed about your situation is the least of your problems. Lack of sleep can put strains into any relationship and work as well. Sleeping together and sharing a bed gives us a feeling of pure contentment which is important in the romantic aspect of the relationship as well as spending the time cuddled up in a good sleep. Unfortunately, your bed partner might be a light sleeper who jumps at every sound she/he hears and the last thing that you want is for the night to end up in a fight and someone taking a sleep on the couch.
Lack of intimacy breeds from alienation of a personal comfort zone which then gives way to occasional fights. Irritability is also a huge factor coming from the person who doesn’t get any sleep listening to a sleeping bear or a tiger. Feelings of resentment will rise up when the non-snoring party scours the market for any devices that will help her/him sleep without disturbances like ear plugs and the like while the their partner doesn’t even do a thing to alleviate or solve the snoring problem.
Quarrels can lead to devastating effects and irreparable damage to your relationship so be serious about taking the steps to stop snoring. Letting your partner know that you are doing your share of eliminating your end of the problem will surely develop a greater bond between you two. After going through curing your snoring problem you will be amazed of how your relationship developed!
How to Handle Complaints
Relationships can get pretty rough and everybody’s on the edge. It will help to understand what your partner is feeling and understand them as well. Taking action to stop snoring is already a clear indication to your partner that you are willing to help yourself and solve the problem. By not doing so, you are not only giving the exact opposite of the message but you just don’t care at all.
Here are my tips:
- Snoring is a condition. Bear in mind that snoring is a condition which basically means that it is up to you to cure it. Also, snoring is natural and part of aging.
- Never turn a deaf ear to your partner’s complaints. You should be fine as long as you are doing something to help resolve the problem. This will also help minimize the feeling of unimportance by not taking your partner seriously.
- Your partner is not complaining about you personally but your SNORING. You should not be hurt when he/she complains about it.
- Sometimes, your partner might push or elbow you in bed when sleeping. This is her/his way to let you know that you’re snoring has become unbearable. Take the initiative of smiling or telling him/her that it is ok and you understand his/her behavior.
