Love and Relationship Quote for February 1, 2017
February’s theme is love and relationships- here is something to ponder today.
“In every disagreement there are always two points of view, and they are both valid,” Dr. John Gottman (Marriage Minutes both both are valid)
According to Gottman, instead of seeing only one truth and arguing your position it is better to empathize with your partner to see their point of view. In turn, this draws you closer together as a couple instead of pushing you further apart so you can work on a solution that works best for both of you.
*This only applies to healthy relationships, in which you feel safe and power and control (either physically and or mentally) is not being exerted over the other such as in a domestic violent situation.
