I know it’s hard, but sometimes we have to say something a bit hurtful to our loved ones in order to help them. Many people don’t realize this, but sometimes the right thing doesn’t feel good doing, and in cases when someone has an embarrassing problem, like snoring loud, you just have to tell them, especially if you love them. There are numerous reasons for this, and all of them valid and not just personal thoughts in the matter, when you love someone, in order to help them and spare them from further embarrassments you just have to tell it to them straight to their face.
One of the most important reasons for telling a loved one that he or she snores pretty badly is for the sake of knowing if they have a health condition. While sometimes snoring is just something that happens because we age and are just out of shape, snoring could also mean that you have an underlying condition, some even saying that loud snoring has a correlation with hear decease. There is a condition known as sleep apnea, which practically means that while you sleep you suddenly stop breathing at times. Which doesn’t sound much at first, but after thinking over the “not breathing” part, will definitely concern you. It is only by notifying your loved one would you be able to help them know if they have a condition that could be treated if found earlier on.
Another reason is social reason. One day your loved one will have to sleep with another group, and depending on how close your loved one is to this group, the reaction of both sides to his snoring problem might vary from embarrassing to traumatizing. If you let your loved one be aware of his or her problem before hand you allow them to be prepared to deal with the situation.
A third reason would be his or her future relationships. Snoring is one of the leading medical reasons for divorces in the US, and some of these relationships don’t even have any problem other than the spouse snoring. If you allow your loved one to know about his or her condition before hand, they would be able to prepare through snoring devices or getting his condition successfully treated before this problem occurs, allowing the divorce rate to lower even to a miniscule amount.
So in conclusion, there are more reasons for you to tell your loved one about their snoring problem compared to just sparing their feelings. And while you do succeed in sparing the feelings of your loved one now, you might end up just delaying a more terrible experience of being made aware of it in a situation where there was no one there to console them.
Snoring is a real problem many hare experiencing today, you should allow the people you know and love to deal with it earlier, allowing them to live normal lives, with healthier relationships and without experiencing a terrible discomfort.
