One group of people I bump into whilst helping couples out of their crisis are the ones that are hell-bent on being right.
In fact being right for them is more important than anything, it’s like they want to be right at any cost.
Unfortunately, the challenge this group of people has is the price they pay ends up being their relationship suffers because of this trait.
Part of their model is about prioritising winning the argument as that is most important to them.
They think if I’m right the problem goes away, but they are not connected to a far bigger problem.
If being right is be more important than their partner’s upset, emotions, and growth it can lead their partner to permanent detachment.
There is a thought that is important for all my clients to understand and that is if you want to make your partner wrong it’s going to collapse the connection.
There are other ways to migrate relationship challenges without damaging the connection for those that want to learn.
