Use Laughter Therapy
Rather than be wounded or angered by unintended words and actions, see them for what they are: the symptoms of a condition you’re trying to manage. A good laugh allows you to move forward in the relationship. I know how difficult this can be. It is easy to be defensive because we have had to explain our behavior for years -- when we acted impulsively or glossed over details due to lack of focus. Drop the defensiveness, then let go and move forward.
