Love Dare – “Daring Feedback”

14 Dec

Dare # 5

One of the most difficult things to solicit is critique from others about ourselves. Whenever we receive critique about ourselves we become very defensive and resistant. “After all”, we say to ourselves “What right does the other person have to “pick” on me?” We fail to realize that critique, when listened to with a teachable attitude, can cause us to make adjustments that could make a profound impact on relationships, especially in our relationship with our spouse. This is what Dare # 5 is all about. Do this Dare today.

“Ask your spouse to tell you three things that cause him or her to be uncomfortable or irritated with you. You must do so without attacking them or justifying your behavior. This is from their perspective only.”

Stephen Kendrick and Alex Kendrick, “The Love Dare”
