One Way To Avoid Resentment, Anger And Frustration In A Relationship


Do you like -- or even need -- to be right? When you're having a discussion with your partner or a friend, are you determined to "win"? In the video above, Dr. Phil says, “If you live like that, you’re going to have a lot of conflict, and you’re going to spend a lot of time feeling resentment, anger and frustration.”

Instead, Dr. Phil suggests that you make the decision to be happy, instead of always trying to be right. “If you make your relationship a competition, that means that there’s a winner and a loser, and nobody likes to be a loser,” he cautions. "Relationships aren’t meant to be competitions, they’re meant to be cooperations. Think about being right and ask yourself if it’s worth the trouble that you’re investing just so you can say, ‘I was right.’”
