Many wives who nag are not even aware that they are nagging everyone around them. They think that they are being helpful. Your wife probably believes that if she nags you enough, you might just miraculously change your behaviour.
There is a story about a woman who was upset with her husband’s temper. She went to the doctor and explained to the doctor how her husband would lose it and get really angry. The doctor told the woman that anytime she noticed her husband was losing his temper she should grab a glass of water and swish it around in her mouth. The woman went back to the doctor and said it was a miracle. Her husband was no longer getting so angry. The woman wanted to know what about the swishing sound calmed her husband down. The doctor explained, “It has nothing to do with the swishing sound. It’s you learning to keep your mouth shut that does the trick.”
