The grounded and wise Jay Shetty believes that in relationships, and specifically disagreements, the worse thing people do is figure out how to handle it on the fly. This makes sense because it’s an emotional encounter that likely has skewed decision making. Jay proposes something else. He proposes setting ground rules and expectations ahead of time while things are good.
I’m definitely curious to see how this works. While it might compromise the current bliss of the relationship when things are good, it prepares you for when things turn. It’s definitely a tradeoff, and this might be a good way to make emotional relationships a bit more sustainable and consistent.
