The Art of Holding Feedback from Your Mate
One of the very challenging aspects of marriage is the giving and receiving of feedback. We have to express our needs and wants directly to our mate. We have to express the things that bother us. Ouch! Hopefully we have carefully sifted these things before we bring them to our mate. Here in the exchange we find many potential potholes. When we bring negative feedback, “It hurt me when you…”, “I was very disappointed when you…” or “I really wish you would quit…” Only the most whole person is able to receive such news and respond well.
