My husband and I always take news differently. He always sees the glass half full where as I always take longer to proces bad news.
When we were recently diagnosed, I was going thru my phases of denial, anger, sadness, etc. It took me a while to fully accept it.
My husband on the other hand, his first reaction was to say “The monkey is perfect.”.
And just because we receive the same news, our first reactions weren’t the same.
And that’s okay.
