Relationships often have some friction right when they’re ready to grow to the next level. It’s helpful to know that. I mentioned a habit that Bob has that shuts me down. He was able to hear me – really hear me. Later he told me his knee-jerk response to suggestions is to think people are telling him he’s broken. He has learned to re-frame that. Now he tells himself:
- I’m not broken. I’m evolving.
He certainly is!
