Play by the Rules!


Play by the Rules!
Making rules for your partner means you've cast yourself as the parent and your partner as the kid.

If you’re a rule-maker, rule-breaker, or rule-follower in your relationship, you can make good use of treatment to understand why you want to function in this way.  Therapy can be a tremendous help in understanding how your worldview developed to the point of either believing you know how others should behave or that others know how you should behave! Rules are about dependency, and counseling helps you learn what’s important to you and how you want to behave, rather than deciding for other people or letting other people decide for you!
