How Being Intolerant Keeps Your Relationship in Balance

Some areas of behavior are so deeply a part of a relationship that they seem to occur naturally and receive very little conscious attention. These very same areas can often be critical pillars upon which successful relationships are built.

One in which the bond of union and the sense of being connected and on the same side pervade all your interactions: the way you speak to each other, the tone of voice you use, the attention you pay, the way you listen to your partner, the respect you show.

But nearly everyone has had a relationship where something went wrong: you were bad-mouthed or felt unsupported, a financial agreement was breached, or even worse.
