Stand Up/Engage

Rubber Band: 

When do you stand up for yourself and how do you engage?


If Your Spouse continues to criticize you or dismiss your viewpoint, let your anger build. They will tell that you don't expect them to agree with you, but you do expect them to be willing to work with you. Make it clear that their attitude is not OK with you. Don't back down. Stay engaged and demand that your spouse explain why they thinks it's OK to dismiss your viewpoint.
