It takes two to tango.

When we find ourselves frustrated with a situation or an individual, it may help to ask ourselves what contribution we may be making to the very dynamic that’s causing our frustration.

Are we bringing negative energy or apprehension into a conversation or situation simply because we’re dreading or anticipating negative behavior or energy from the other person(s)? Are we failing to address concerns directly with the individuals we’re challenged by, and then wondering why they’re not aware of the impact of their own behaviors?

Of course our positive contributions to our successful relationships are just as meaningful. But either way, it may be helpful to remember that it takes two to tango.
