“Even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.”
- Maya Angelou
|Pain in the ^&@#**|
|Many who read these tips are hurting in really significant ways. And I know that as I sank deeper and deeper into hurt in my own relationship I discovered that it felt okay - even good, sometimes - to also lash out at my partner. Justified, too. It was one of the few effective ways to get his attention when he was distracted.|
But it’s not justified. Nor does it work. As Angelou notes, we do better when we act in a way that makes us proud of our own behavior. Your partner may be driving you crazy but I urge you to not return the favor!
