A dear friend of mine always gives the same gift whenever he hears that anyone has gotten engaged: A small laminated sign to put at the bottom of their mirror. It says "You are looking at the problem."

If whatever they are doing isn't abusive, then the problem is me choosing to let it upset me. Each time it happens, make yourself sit down and write five things about him you are grateful for.

Eventually, you will hate doing the gratitude list so much that you'll stop yourself from griping internally about whatever the habit is. ;-)
