When life gives you pickles, eat them. 🥒Sep 01, 2022
“Being in a pickle” means being in a tough situation with no obvious solution. In relationships we get into pickles when it seems like one person wins and the other loses. We tend to respond by trying to dominate (win) or withdraw (if we’re going to lose at least it was on our terms). Either way the relationship loses because we already assumed separate interests. We both lose when the relationship loses. Instead let’s “eat the pickle”. Say “Yum” to the tension. Lean in by exploring instead of fixing. Question the assumption that the needs are at odds. Enough pickle bites and pretty soon there's none left.
