It’s common that in relationships one person is more powerful, or perceived to be more powerful than the other person. Sometimes, this creates a power struggle and issues in the relationship whether it’s with a romantic partner, work colleague or friends.
According to FamilyAffaires.com Contributor, Dr. Dan Gottlieb, the person who is perceived to be more powerful is actually a bully who is powerless. Their aggressive behavior is rooted in fear. If we feel threatened, we react with aggression. In actuality, we are intolerant of our own powerlessness.
Real strength and power happens when you are comfortable with your own weaknesses. Listen and learn as Dr. Dan and FamilyAffaires.com Community Advocate, Roseann Vanella discuss this topic and offer some great insight.
