Tough love = correction + kindness + dignity endurance

During this show we will be discussing the following; Tough love usually comes up as an issue when someone else is out of control. Tough love can apply to another adult or to a child, and also in relationship to one's self. For example, when a part of our self is out of control/ignoring the dictates of wisdom or acting against one's better judgment. Exercising tough love in a relationship requires some form of intentional dialogue. Exercising tough love with oneself requires self-reflection, and self-compassion. Compassion for one self tends to be late developing.  We want to know; How does Tough Love work within a relationship? Does it change anything for the good? For the bad? Have you ever done it and what was the outcome? Call us at (347) 850-1619 and tell us your thoughts!
