Because I sometimes have a hard time overruling my ego and the tendency
to feel threatening if I'm not 100% right. I'm a little slow to realize
that sometimes and end up contributing to these sorts of exchanges. I
do it with my wife as well, but I'm working on accepting that I can be
wrong and it doesn't make me any less of a person. And I'm also
learning that my assumptions that the implied will be conveyed and
understood contribute to miscommunications. I'm working on it.
