Let's face it, most of us definitely don't know how to do either one of these things well.  Have you ever tried to provide someone with gentle constructive criticism and been received by a torrent of indignations, resentment and drama?  Have you ever tried to use the "I" perspective with a spouse and been met with abject rejection and a spewing of all of your shortcomings?

Have you ever given someone a compliment and immediately regretted it?  How about this: "I like that outfit you have on." "Why?  Why do you like it?" "I don't know, it just looks good on you." "That's the best you can come up with?  It just looks good on me???" 

Of course, if you were the culprit, this show is definitely for you!  Back by popular demand, Barbara Hofmeister, Amazon best selling author of The To Be Book, and Moments TO BE, explains how to escape the rut of negative thinking and move towards the life you want.
