  • We spend a lot of time in relationships pointing out what's wrong with the other person and insisting on our blamelessness.

  • We imagine that's a good strategy for getting what we want and for being happy in a couple, but that's nonsense.

  • Next time you feel strong enough that you can, for a moment, stop insisting you're always right, try a different tack.

  • Out of the blue say: "sorry I'm so anxious", "sorry I lose my temper", "sorry I don't listen enough", "sorry I'm too preoccupied", "sorry I both want you close and push you away", "sorry I'm not always balanced, sane or mature".

  • You think that might weaken you, make you hostage to the partner's vengeance.

  • It never does.

  • Everything always gets better from that point.

  • Give it a try.

  • "Sorry I'm so crazy."
