How To Be Less Of An A**hole In Life And Relationships
Ask Polly: ‘How Do I Stop Being an Asshole?’
Sometimes I'd walk into the living room to find my wife watching 16 and Pregnant or some other TV show I thought was stupid or morally baseless. But instead of those mature and relationship-nurturing alternatives, I usually acted like an asshole. I think deep down in the furthest recesses of my heart and subconscious, I believed I was doing the right thing by reacting as I did. Because I loved my wife and wanted her to be the best person she could be, I didn't want her to enjoy watching things that were "beneath" her or "bad" for her.
