“I give feedback; you’re critical. I’m firm; you’re stubborn. I’m flexible; you’re wishy-washy. I’m in touch with my feelings; you’re hysterical!” - Steven Stosny (taken from Dr. Jessica Higgin’s blog)
From Our Own Vantage Point
Isn’t it amazing how we so fully understand and forgive our own behaviors and motivations, while those same behaviors in our partners are simply unacceptable?! I laughed when I read Stosny’s quote, and hope that it brings you a moment of pleasure…and reflection.
