Relationships 101 – Secret Side of Anger, and Great Relationships Begin Within

Janet Pfeiffer, author of The Secret Side of Anger joined me to discuss the differences between assertion, aggression, and passive aggression. We also discussed how anger is easily prostituted when it substitutes for more vulnerable emotions. Maryanne Comaroto and I then discussed the central importance of introspection and self-reflection for preparing to be in an intimate relationship with anyone else. Avoiding this guarantees another failure.
