He’s Still Not Seeing My Side

Laura Heck_Mercer Island_Couples TherapistAll too often we get caught up in THE GAME of trying to convince our partner or get our way. Is it really that important to you or are you just being stubborn and playing THE GAME? The next time you and your partner are at opposites, ask yourself “Self..how important is it to you to get your way on this matter?” Rank your importance of a scale of 1-10. Have your partner do the same thing. Share with each other how you have ranked. If it is really a priority, then stick out the discussion and try to reach a compromise. If not, let it gooooooo…. Yield to your partner and allow them to get their way.

We spend way too much time playing THE GAME and not enough time treasuring our loved ones. Don’t sweat the small stuff and put up the fight on things that matter the most.
