common ground

Friday, June 20, 2014

a very special lifeguard has guided me with better swimming techniques and life coaching.

Today, without thinking, as we chatted, I told him that I have this relative whom I'm always in conflict with and I just can't win with her. The guard told me not to try to win but to find the common ground. Duh, that makes sense, and I've lost a lot of time fussing over this problem. Thank you to my favorite lifeguard.

    Along the same line, I was finding a relationship with another person irritating. Then someone told me to look for a positive each time I started to get angry or upset about this person's behavior. Sounds simple, but it worked for me! emoticon
