  • About the Guest

  • Sometimes you come home from work frustrated and you kick the dog. Other times, we project our feelings onto other relationships. Say a husband feels disrespected by his wife but avoids verbalizing his need but when she speaks to the kids in the same way he rescues them. He assumes they feel the same disrespect he does. The point is, he's fighting their battle because it's really his own. You can't improve your relationship that way. Speak directly to your need, don't be a projector.

Ron: Movie theatres project an image on to a screen. Sometimes people project frustrations.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Yeah, I think we all get that. Sometimes you come home from work frustrated and you kick the dog. Other times, we project our feelings onto other relationships. Say a husband feels disrespected by his wife but avoids speaking up for his need but when she speaks to the children in the same way he comes to their rescue. He assumes they feel the same disrespect he does which may or may not be the case.

The point is, he’s fighting their battle because it’s really his own. But you can’t improve your relationship that way. Speak directly to your need, don’t be a projector. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
