There’s a lot of wisdom in old sayings. Yeah I know, people in contemporary culture seem to think we are so highly educated and sophisticated that some of the old, simple sayings are passé’, not hip, and unworthy of consideration. I believe many of those old jewels are just as valuable as ever, especially when it comes to keeping the lines of communication open when you're working with your ex.
Here are three well known examples:
- If you can’t something nice don’t say anything at all
- You can’t un-say something once said
- An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure
When you're faced with the task of communicating with (or about) your ex, it is tempting to give into the desire to get in your "digs, get "snarky," and bring up past events or issues that have nothing to do with the matter at hand. Resist that temptation, no matter how easy it may seem to succumb to it. Here's why.
