Back home. Ana and I attempt to have a nice time but something negative always comes up in conversation and we just can’t seem to be nice to each other. I really try but there just isn’t any room for space between each other. She keeps bringing up the idea of moving out for a week or just leaving.

...

At some point later on she’s curled up in her bed and I offer a good night.

Back home. She gets triggered by something that’s said and we almost get into a really heated argument about our relationship. I try to keep my tone calm – it’s hard at times but works well when I really focus on it.
