Matthew Hussey: 6 Behaviours That Kill Relationships

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
— Victor Frankl

One of our favourite love and relationship gurus, Matthew Hussey, explores 6 behaviours which he believes put tensions and strains on our relationships. For Matthew, in our relationship conflicts, we are often reacting to fear. We don’t give ourselves the space we need to think about our responses to others and evaluate how and why they are feeling the way they do. There’s always two sides to an argument and often we need to allow for more nuances and complexities in them to move forward before shutting off and sparking conflict… however tempting it may be.
