Do it Now Before it’s Too Late, or Before Your Spouse Starts Looking for Comfort Outside the Relationship
My husband and I fought constantly. We didn’t understand that the horrible things we were saying to each other in each fight were slowly destroying our relationship. I found Sharon’s book online (“Breaking the Argument Cycle”), and my husband and I started reading it the second we received it. As Sharon explains, our fights were really being triggered by something deeper, issues from the past that we never thought would have anything to do with the consistent fights we were having in the present! We immediately determined our own story-below-the-story and were completely shocked to see that it really was connected to the arguments we were always having! Now, when we start fighting, we are able to detect if a “delicate” core issue has been triggered, which is our signal to use the appropriate tools from the workbook (which are included in the book) to help resolve and end the argument. If you need help ending the battles in your relationship, this is an absolute must-read. Do it now before it’s too late, or before your spouse starts looking for comfort outside the relationship…which almost happened in my marriage!!!
A Huge Lightbulb Went Off, and I Finally Recognized That it Was Over
Sharon Rivkin’s First Argument Technique is nothing short of life-changing. I attended Sharon’s workshop in the middle of a completely unhealthy relationship that I seemed unable to mentally break out of. It wasn’t until Sharon presented and explained the First Argument Technique, a 3-step system, that I realized the source of conflicts (my boyfriend’s and mine) ran much deeper than I thought. I quickly determined my core issues and a huge lightbulb went off in my head. I was finally able to see the light. It helped me make sense of a very unclear situation. I ended the relationship and was able to heal and move on much quicker all because of Sharon and her outstanding book.
Radical Disagreements are Finally Resolved
Whenever my husband and I put into practice the advice you give in your book, it completely changes the conflict from a fight to a calm discussion, one that often ends up bringing us closer together. When we make the effort to understand each other’s reasons for feeling so radically different about whatever it is we disagree on, it’s easier for us to compromise, to give in a little, to find the middle ground — and to not argue. So, thank you. You’re doing wonders for our marriage and our friendship.
Newlyweds Do What Other’s Aren’t Doing
After attending a workshop with Sharon Rivkin as newlyweds, we are now much more able to communicate in a helpful and respectful way. Our communication tended to be self focused and what Sharon taught was a more systematic, loving and caring way to communicate where both persons’ feelings and concerns are taken into consideration. Thanks to Sharon’s work we are beginning a life together from a healthy, open place.
