I love this video, because of the ruthless football coach (at the time) Jimmy Johnson telling his player that it was allright for him to have a bad day. What a gift. The ability to have a bad day.
I believe one of the greatest breakthroughs we can have in our relationships, is to give the people we love the most the opportunity to have a bad day.
There are days that the people we love will bark at us, snap with a short fuse at something we say, respond inappropriately, and generally wake up on the wrong side of the bed. The problem isn’t these happenings, we all do these things. The problem is when we repeat these, and these reactions become the norm and not the exceptions in our behavior.
