Kris’ Take: I like to think that I’m a pretty sensitive guy, so it was to my surprise when I found out that I may not express how I feel as well as I thought. Recently there was a medical emergency, and it was a pretty darn important moment in the involved parties’ lives. When it comes to medical emergencies I always thought that it wasn’t a good idea to be openly worried. I thought that you are supposed to be as positive as possible, and apparently I was wrong. I didn’t show that I was really worried, and this came off as I didn’t care. That couldn’t be further from the truth. So now I need to figure out what the best way to respond in a medical emergency is. I thought it was my job to be the strong positive person… I get surprises everyday.
Laura’s Take: I can see where both sides would come from. I think there must be a good even ground, where you are still positive about the situation while also letting them know how much they mean to you. Pillars are definitely good, but it’s nice to see that big burly man turn into a vulnerable pile of mush over the love of his life.
