Usually on this podcast we talk about things that don't work in families and relationships.
Today we're talking about something that works. We're talking about a couple that is really making it work.
This couple came in to therapy with a lot of conflict and resistance. They were white knuckling it for sure.
One mistake they made was they did a lot of mind reading. That happens when you're not looking at yourself or your marriage but you're trying to read your partner's mind. You do that out of fear and it's always negative.
Now, they're choosing to be present. That's a difficult thing to do. But if there's an argument you're in, stay in that argument. Don't go back to past disagreements. This allowed the couple to get a better handle on the present status and opportunity in their marriage.
They also decided to change independent of their partner. Don't wait for your partner to change, do it yourself. Look at yourself.
