RELATIONSHIP TIPS

Below are a few tips I have incorporated into my own relationships (Stay tuned for more in the future). These tips have served me well; I’m hopeful they will serve you well also.

Tip 1: If you are finding it difficult to give honest feedback to someone when they ask,
minimally be neutral about your response rather than lying.

Tip 2: Learn the art of repair. Own your mistake fully, apologize, ask if there is anything
you can do to repair it and don’t, know matter what, minimize, justify or
rationalize your behavior.

Tip 3: Listen like you truly care about what is being said. I promise the person speaking
will notice.

Tip 4: Treat all human beings with respect; treat those close to you with loving
tenderness.

Tip 5: Insure that your home is a safe haven for all who live there. If it is not, take steps
to make it so.

Challenge: Read over this list and choose the tip you struggle with the most and commit to taking two action steps that will strengthen this area.
