In the past, my instinctive reaction to any difficult situation was to try to take control and “fix it” because I always thought I knew best. One day, I had a disagreement with my partner about what he should do in a certain situation. I thought, since I had been in a similar situation in the past, I knew what was best. He ended up doing what he thought he should do. I mentioned this a a friend and she gently reminded me that I do not know everything and that my priorities are not necessarily the priorities of others.
