it's why i like the MBTI so much. gives me a groundwork for looking outside my own perspective
Skylights, we are on the same page. I have been trying to get my mother to understand this but it's been a tough road. She's such a good person where her motives are hardly ever bad but when others are offended by her actions over and over, she sees it as the other person's fault as opposed to seeing the relationship as a two-way street and feels attacked. I would not want to live life like that.
