How to Ruin a Relationship

Season 1, Episode 32

When you communicate consistently with a critical attitude, it tells more about who you are than who you are criticizing. Critics are struggling with deeper matters like unresolved anger, strong defenses, a need to compensate for insecurity, and a judgmental nature. This podcast will challenge you to be honest about your own inner tensions that are revealed by your propensity to find fault in others.

  • Critics can be too strongly driven by idealism, as opposed to being anchored in realism.
