By nature, we are all creatures of habit.
We instinctively adopt familiar routines for most activities.

at more or less the same times.

unless it is perturbed by illness or shift work.
Most everything we do is habitual.

It is unlikely that they are intentionally aggravating you.

and adopt a live-and-let-live attitude.
Your relationship will become stronger and happier if you do.

I am persuaded that the world has been tricked into adopting
some false and most pernicious notions about consistency -

where it should be his humiliation.

we hope will call us "old friend" in the years to come.

of happy people and unhappy people
through two different, but complementary mechanisms,
