Why is it that when our partner tries to change their behavior, we so often shoot it down, claiming its "fake"?
Because often we have this dichotomous thinking (Eithor) that if our partner doesn't do it naturally then they're faking it.
But every new behavior will feel somewhat fake because if it was natural for us, we would've done it already!
What is the solution?
To soften our Natural/Fake Eithor.

In this talk, Galit and I explain how this Eithor is created and how it prevents couples from growing and evolving.
Examples are given from the clinic and our marriage.
Practical tips will help you become more open and positive about the behavioral change of your partner.
