Cleaning Your Side of the Street
- 2015 3 Jun
What about them? Isn’t this a 50/50 deal? Don’t they have to change too? That is a common question a person asks me in regards to the behavior of their mate. My response is always the same. They are 100% responsible for their behavior, and you are totally responsible for yours. Their behavior issues are likely different than yours and you are only responsible for yours. But, you are responsible for your behavior. If you take care of your problems, many of the problems in the relationship will be cleared up. Do you take responsibility for your behavior?
