Rule #42 - Reassure Them When They Complain

You don't come over enough / you just don't like them / you have changed / you don't phone them enough

Rather than getting into an argument where you feel so hurt and misunderstood, it’s time to cut the umbilical cord and reassure yourself that you are no longer the people pleaser, but an adult who is going to act responsibly yet appropriately; And you will act considerately yet give yourself significance for being on this universe.

The Steps of Reassurance:

1) You love them, you really, really do.

2) You want to do this your own way.

3) If they react badly to that, then you feel very sorry for them.

4) You are still going to do this your way.
