Seek first to understand, then be understood
Question: We know we need to make changes in our budget. We spend too much. But whenever my wife and I discuss this, we end up arguing. I say she is asking me to do all the sacrificing. But then she basically says the same thing back to me. We’re stuck.
Answer: I hear you, brother!
But have you heard her? Really? Would she say so? Why don’t you find out?
