Family Dynamics

Do we help each other to deal with family and couple problems or does their presence in our lives bring out selfishness and storytelling about our partner, such as “She just doesn’t understand what I’m going through?” or, “He has always been insensitive and never makes room for my needs.”

Be careful about these absolutes, “always” and “never,” as they pigeon hole our partners. Then we tend to relate to them through the stories we tell ourselves about them.
