Defensiveness is a common human reaction. All too often, defensiveness can ruin a conversation and cause us to feel disconnected, unheard, and defeated.
When life gets busy we often forget to find time to play, laugh, and simply enjoy each other. Listen in and discover some fun ideas for play dates with your mate!
Just like our human body, an argument has parts that, if understood, give us clarity about why we function as we do in the heat of battle.
Do you ever react to your mate’s behavior and find their reaction to your reaction just escalates the tension further?
We usually give our mate the kinds of love we’d like to receive. If we like our mate to help us by doing a chore or task, when they give us a word of affirmation instead, it may not register on our “I feel loved” radar.
