Question and answer
What feeling messages might you choose that could assist you when working in a defensive environment around negative people?
Defensive behavior is one of the leading causes of on-going painful conflicts within a relationship, the type which can lead to long term damage. [ Defensive behavior sends the message to your partner that their experiences and ideas are wrong, and that you are in the right. However, as you may have seen, in these situations, a well meaning defense can quickly turn into a battle where each side is unwilling to give in. he key to creating change in unhealthy communication patterns is to create a supportive environment, where both partners are working to communicate effectively. This places
responsibility on both partners, allowing each to have a stake in the outcome. Relationships are like a baby mobile, if you tug on one side, everything changes. If you shift your behavior, your partner will automatically have to shift their behavior in response. Make sure you move in the right direction, allowing you partner’s behavior to move in the same way. ]
