Something to Think About

In this episode, we came to understand that:

  • There are times when we each need to set aside our prefered ways in order to establish a companionable spirit.
  • When the other operates with an attitude of entitlement or insensitivity, a fair response is to establish your separateness.
  • Appeasement is appropriate when it is balanced with reasonable self-care.
