images-14

 

Did you know contempt can be considered the number one factor that tears couples apart!

People who are focused on criticizing their partners miss a whopping 1/2 of the positive things their partners are doing and they see negativity when it’s not there.

You are also making your partner feel invisible and worthless by either focusing solely on the negative or ignoring your partner all together.

According to a research study, individuals who treat their partners with contempt and criticism not only kill the love, but they also kill their partner’s ability to fight off viruses and cancers. Being mean is the death knell of relationships.

If this is you?  How can you turn this around. How can you in fact be kinder and gentler to your partner.
