Therapy Under Five: Getting Hurt / Who's Responsible?
Here's my third video in a new series I'm calling "Therapy Under Five." It's done Q&A style—in each video I read a question I've received and offer some of my thoughts from a process-oriented or depth-oriented perspective in only (about) 5 minutes. I went considerably over this time :-) but there are some good nuggets in here, so hopefully one or more points will resonate with you! Note that my answers are not meant to be comprehensive or considered treatment or a substitute for treatment.
TODAY'S QUESTION: When someone close to me (like a friend, my partner, or a family member) hurts my feelings or offends me what should I be taking responsibility for and what should they be taking responsibility for? How do I talk with them about it?
