Not getting along with your significant other? We each view the world through a unique, personal lens that’s been shaped by our experiences and expectations. That view, in turn, shapes our reactions to events both big and small. A better understanding of your partner’s lens can help reduce the conflict in your relationship.
- Small misunderstandings can lead to big crisis’s between couples.
- It’s important to understand that there is a big difference between what is going in the outer world and the inner world of a loved one.
- The significance of an event can be due to an interior association, which can lead to difficult, yet avoidable consequences, if partners develop perceptiveness, regarding their partners different worlds.
“Inter-subjectivity can be enhanced through thoughtful consideration of the distinction between internal events and external events.”
