The "Little White Whys" author tells The Doctors, "If you can't be honest with yourself, you can't be honest with your partner. So, you have got to tell yourself some truths first." He suggests avoiding "trap question" like, "Do these jeans make me look fat?" and "Do you like my new haircut?" He says couples need to be okay sharing the truth with one another.
Is it bad to go to bed angry?
Dr. Ish says it is bad to go to bed angry and it is better to resolve it before going to sleep. He explains that if you do need more time to process, then you have to communicate that to your partner.
