A Recipe for Disaster


Disheartened by the discord I see all over the world among past friends I’ve devised this fool-proof recipe for ruining a relationship:

Blame him or her or them for the problem

Tell him or her or them they need to work on themselves, to change, grow up, be less selfish, whatever

Absolve yourself of any responsibility

Sit back and continue to criticize him or her or them

Never examine your own thoughts, motives, and actions

Watch the relationship with your spouse, parent, sibling, friend, neighbor, or co-worker completely unravel

Console yourself thinking it was all his or her or their fault, not yours

And for a recipe to save a relationship and bring harmony in the world:

Do the opposite!
