Be sure to always evaluate your interactions with difficult people. You won’t learn new skills if you are not evaluating how you are doing.
Use the “liked best” and “next time” approach this week.
After you’ve had any contact with your DP, ask yourself “What did I like best about how I handled myself with X?” and then “What could I do different the next time this happens?”
You will learn what you need to continue and what you can change for the next time. Remember that if you keep on doing what you’ve always done you’ll keep on getting what you’ve always got. Sometimes what you are doing is giving you the correct result, and sometimes it is not. Evaluate what is working.
It works. Try it and keep on-the-right-track this week.
