My partner has a way of projecting her wants plus needs as being our wants plus needs.
Last week, she was complaining about how frigid it was in the basement.
I asked him if she had turned the temperature control up? She told myself and others he would do without the heat plus just put on a jacket. She didn’t want our weekly bills to go too high. I paid the energy b[lls. She did not think how much all of us spent on our weekly weekly bills. So when she tried to tell myself and others that keeping the heat off downstairs meant all of us would be more comfortable upstairs. I asked if it was for our comfort or his? She spit plus sputtered plus told myself and others that, of course, it was for our comfort. My partner will not turn the heat on in the basement because she feels care about she is wasting energy. In the long run, all she was doing was making himself sick plus when she came to bed shivering, all of us would have to turn the temperature control up in the family room. I didn’t think how to explain to him that by keeping her basement labor room heated; she was saving heat upstairs. The gas furnace wasn’t running nearly as much at night when she had the heat on in the basement because that room was directly under our family room. The ambient heat from the gas furnace running in her workroom was helping to heat our family room. At 1 point it would’ve been him trying to explain this thought to me, however as much as I do not like to admit it, at her age she needs to be reminded.
