In my blog about Deal Breakers, I drew from Dr. Bethany Marshall’s work to stress the importance of knowing your non-negotiable relationship terms. I outlined the personality types that make healthy relationships impossible, and shared 5 steps to finding and asserting your personal bottom lines.
My intention was to help partners stop wasting precious years on a relationship that violates deeply-held life dreams (or improve a relationship that has potential but needs clarity around its terms).
But what if you have followed these steps and it didn’t work? What should you do when you have raised your deal breakers to your partner, worked on the relationship, and continue to feel something is wrong?
