Give Aliens in America a look this evening ...
I thought the scene with Dave and Katie in therapy was good. I've read some books lately on communication, assertiveness, being direct, etc., and I can now identify specific mistakes they make in their communication. They are not direct with each other, expect the other to mind-read, negatively interpret each other's behaviors, etc. It's so clear to me now that they need to be explicit in stating what they want, feel, think, etc., rather than expecting the other person to "just know".
I am scared by how much of myself I saw in your "specific mistakes" examples from above.
Now I need to go hash things out with my wife.
I plan to watch "Aliens in America" tonight, but I can only record two things at once. Heroes and the CBS duo of "Mother" and "Men" take up my 8pm hour, although if last week was any indication, Heroes won't be on my list much longer.
In any case, I'll just watch Aliens in America on my other TV in the bedroom tonight.
