There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth... not going all the way, and not starting.
Jonathan Robinson, a highly regarded psychotherapist, and bestselling author reports that everyone wants to experience relationship balance, care, understanding, and empathy in their most meaningful relationships - at work or home. However, four relationship mistakes often get in the way of receiving what we want. He calls these four culprits "The Four Horseman of the Relationship Apocalypse." They are Denigration, Denial, Dismissal, and Distraction.
Truth distortions dance around Reality, and relationship balance, evolved relationship management, requires increasing the opportunities for trust and vulnerability.
If you suffer from strains in your relationship, chances are at least one of these Horsemen is at work in unraveling the fabric of your love.
