THE FIFTY FIFTY
We so often talk about doing our part or our half. We are often willing to take fifty percent responsibility for what goes on in our relationship. I call this "dancing the fifty fifty."
There is nothing wrong with fifty-fifty. In fact, it makes a great ice cream bar! But it is just that. Fifty-fifty. It’s pretty difficult to maintain and virtually impossible to find an objective tool to measure fifty-fifty. I’ve looked in all the major hardware and home stores. They don’t sell such a tool. The salespeople just laugh at me.
What’s worse is you never get to experience the other person in his or her wholeness. You only get half of them, and sometimes the half you get ain’t very pretty or nice!
That’s why we are talking about FOLDING and DANCING instead of blending! We want to dance with all of our partner, not just a piece! (Final Chapter, page 161).
So what do you think? There's more to this chapter and you can purchase your very own copy on AMAZON or BARNES AND NOBLE.
