If you are a person who has already asked for change and haven't seen it you should leave. But if you've never asked anything, then you should at least ask first. I've seen other bloggers qualify their articles with statements like " Safety concerns trump everything. I can see why you might have thought my advice was directed at abusive relationships, given the reference to childhood emotional abuse. But to suggest even diplomatically confronting an abuser with their bad behavior, without proper support, exit strategies, and a safety plan, wouldn't be wise--you're right.
Thanks for clarifying that. In the case of severe abuse, breaking the self-blame habit starts as an internal process: The first step is in realizing that someone treating you badly doesn't mean your a bad person. In that way, the logic of the piece still applies. If only I'd been able to read your posts in college it would have saved me a great deal of heartache. I like how this also applies to parenting and everything in life--we're always trying to see how we can fix things because that might mean we had more control in the situation than we do.
Hey Craig-Thanks for bringing the Gottman research into your column.

Also-thanks for visiting Relationship Gardening! I also learned from the Gottman's at their From Betrayal to Trust workshop and can be found in their book the Science of Trust that negativity is sticky. Much of it is not that you don't care, but that you have any idea that works how to get unstuck.

I think the point you brought out is something I also find in couples when there has been past trauma. Seems like most are coming in these days with past trauma and then being too "unsafe" to risk through the struggling while getting new habits in place. Would love if you did a series of articles on healing trauma in couples.
I'll be able to reply and say a little more later--its just me, running a full time practice while doing all this--but for now I just want to thank you so much for reading and commenting!
Relationship Communication: How to Talk So That Your Partner Will Listen
It's what makes this such a great experience for me. I was dating a psychologist listed on Psychology Today. He is a regular cocaine user. We were on his 5 story roof when he was telling me I'll would most likely survive a fall from the roof.
He then tried to grab me and pick me up. I fought him off and ran. I found that when another person has hurt me there was an opportunity to resolve my own feelings of hurt. When I did this then it was much easier to tell the other person how their behaviors were hurtful and to ask them to change their behaviors.
I think that people that engage in the self-blaming might do that for that exact reason.

I'm this sort of person. My last partner loved me but I didn't tell him if things he did or said hurt me. Instead, I told myself I had two options: Accept who he is, or leave. I learned to tell him how I felt. And he did change, because he cared how I felt, he just had no idea how I felt because I hadn't told him.
I was surprised by this as I did not think it was possible for anyone to change. But then I left anyway - it was too late and I was no longer in love with him. But I learned something. That's just an amazing article! Thank you so much! No idea if you still read the comments bur I just need to say it! I've always searched for what's wrong with me. My childhood was bad and the worst part was the bullying at school, then an abusive relationship and you could see where that goes Plus not to mention all the self help advice that tell you if you have problems with men you are the problem, teaching you how to be understanding and forgiving, how to be good.
Sometimes it's not your fault and the only thing you're doing wrong is always searching for what you did wrong.

I was agonizing over what I did wrong with this man when, well, the answer is he did the wrong things, not me. It's not my fault, it's his fault and I should not accept him and forgiveness can only be earned not freely given. There are the highs when they manage a magnificent win and the inevitable lows when their character is killed off though my son usually blames this on the lag or his team mates rather than his skills.
For the uninitiated, Fortnite is a wildly popular computer game which has captured the attention of lots of children as well as plenty of adults. There are two modes. Firstly, Save the World which is a survival game where the players have to explore, scavenge, build fortresses and fight off monsters.
The Genesis of Blame
Every parent makes a decision whether their children are mature enough to play games which are out of their age range. But, if you discover your underage child is not coping well with the game it is not then the fault of the game itself but rather your misjudgement about what is appropriate for your child. Where does Brees rank among starting QBs? Walter Thurmond picked off one of his 43 pass attempts six others were defended by the Eagles , and his two fumbles were the product of him holding onto the ball for too long.
At without a single win on the road in three games, some are wondering if Brees is, as some said last season, rapidly declining.
You can blame coaching, but the easiest thing to pin the start on is the defense. Their pass defense is so bad that they were allowing 8. Freeman looms in the Saints-Falcons Thursday Night Football matchup, and he effectively carried the Falcons to a victory this week. Mark Ingram is a true feature back and both Khiry Robinson and C. Spiller are capable rushers, but this team is forcing Brees to carry the day with the way they are defending.
