to be saddened by all the low level arseholery that so many people seem to have in their family lives....

All the “he ate all the chocolate without thinking about sharing” “I mocked him when he sang to our child” sort of stuff.

Just-don’t do it. Obviously i’m not talking about big things-just day to day unkindness and selfishness. That’s not what life should be about.

I tend to differentiate between the sort of understandable thoughtlessness ( e.g. silly example - let's say I have just tidied up all the shoes because getting fed up of them being left where discarded in a v small house ) and after a hard day at work someone leaves theirs out instead of being put away where in an unaccounted fit of tidying & I have told everyone where they now go but then person says "sorry", & just not thinking how your behaviour is affecting others on a regular basis. ( This post makes my housekeeping sound better than it is BTW )
Also what is nice is to open the fridge and shout up - "does anyone mind if I have the last x" - silly examples and low level in the extreme but I sort of get your point @BertrandRussell. I can deal with low level stuff if occasional and if reasonable someone says sorry. I don't expect everyone to be perfect ( I'm not - by a long chalk - general thoughtfulness and apologies every so often go a long way in my book from me as well as everyone else for the avoidance of doubt - I am far from perfect. )
