“Here are three pills – one for your spouse, one for your boss, and one

When you are sick and go to the doctor, the doctor never
says “Here are three pills – one for your spouse, one for your boss, and one
for your mother-in-law. Once all of them take their medication, you will be
just fine!” As absurd as this sounds, this is exactly what many people attempt
to do in their relationships – to fix others so they can feel better. “The only
way we can feel better is by working on ourselves”.
