What can I do to have better relationships?
Good relationships come from the following:
- Read the book, Codependent No More. Study the codependent triangle I've been talking about for years, and avoid this unevolved mode of relating.
- The self-expression of the subpersonalities is the foundation of successful relationships.
- Firmness with yourself and gentleness with others is a key component. Everyone has a sensitive inner child – a 5-year old – at heart.
- Most relationships are formed from agendas with each other. Self-reliance prevents this fragile form of connection with others.
