STOPPING MISCOMMUNICATION DISASTERS THAT RUIN THE MOMENT
“How could you be so hurt? That was not my intention! I just wish you got me and knew my heart. I feel so misunderstood” This is a classic example of how there has been a miscommunication, with an unintended negative impact, and both people end up feeling hurt. Why does this happen so often? There are a couple of reasons. One is that miscommunication is inevitable. John and Julie Gottman’s research has found that 70% of the great couples’ interactions don’t go as intended. It’s normal and no one should be shocked. You are two different people, with different histories, cultures and personalities. At any given time there is a 50% chance one of you is going to be in your own world, not aware of your partner’s needs. Again, normal.
Intentions and Filters
Secondly, the reason why intentions do not always have the intended impact is because of our filters. About a month ago I asked Dr. Gottman what to do about couples who get into fights over their intentions being misunderstood. He simply drew a diagram that looks like this. Well, to be fair his was with stick people, but the point is the same.
What often occurs is an unintentional tone or wording that changes the message. In this situation it is Homer’s positive intention that travels through his Filter, and before it has a chance to impact Marge it must also go through her Filter. In this case, the filter is some history of him being critical of her housekeeping. Maybe there has even been a fight where Homer may have said she is lazy or useless. Hard to imagine, I know, but it could have happened.
3 REGRETFUL LIES (AND EXCUSES) YOUR MIND LIKES TO TELL YOU
The human mind is wonderful. It’s also a good liar and an “excuse machine” that frequently tries to convince us NOT to take actions we know are good for us. This ultimately prevents many positive changes from taking place in our lives.
But why? Why does the mind lie to us and make irrational excuses?
Because the mind wants comfort, that’s why! It’s afraid of discomfort, pressure and change. The mind is used to its comfort zone, and anytime we try to stretch that zone too far, for too long, the mind tries desperately to get back to ground zero at any cost… including sacrificing our long-term health, happiness and success.

18 EMOTIONS YOU SHOULDN’T FEEL IN A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP
We go through a range of feelings when we’re in a relationship. But if you’re faced with these unhealthy emotions, it may be time to cut it loose.
A relationship should feel like a support system, a safe haven, and a place to express yourself openly without being mocked or judged. Settling for less than you deserve by staying in a dead end or unsatisfying relationship will only make you feel more isolated and alone.
If a relationship affects your mental sanity, disrupts your inner peace, corrodes your self-esteem, and generally makes you feel more negative than positive, you should either let the relationship go or seek help in improving your relationship. People seek relationships in order to feel happy, accepted, and complete, but when you feel any of the following emotions, ask yourself, “What’s the point of staying in a relationship that’s doing more harm than good?”
1 THING UNHAPPY PEOPLE REFUSE TO DO FOR THEMSELVES
Life is really hard sometimes. There’s no escaping that reality. It’s impossible to live well without encountering a certain level of struggle, and there are some seasons in our lives that are especially heartbreaking.
For Marc and me, one such season occurred over the course of 15 months when we were in our late-20’s. It was a period of profound loss, beginning when we lost our jobs and our house in the downturn of the economy. It started out as a financially scary and uncertain time for our family. Worry seeped into everyday life. “Unhappiness” is the simplest word to describe it.
Then, as we were learning to navigate our new reality, we were hit with a devastating loss: the death of a mutual best friend from sudden cardiac arrest. The loss of such a key figure in our lives was intense! We were absolutely devastated and knocked down to what seemed like the lowest of lows for weeks on end. And just as we were beginning to get back on our feet, my older brother died by suicide.
