Getting back in the game after a divorce can be incredibly challenging for people who’re filled with self-doubt. Divorce has a way of crushing your self-esteem, and the idea of getting into a new relationship can be nerve-wracking.
That being said, some experts believe that relationships after a divorce are usually a lot better than earlier ones.
Most adults can accept when they’re wrong and are willing to make changes that help them become better people, but there are also those who can’t take criticism at all.
When you try to get them to see your side, they manipulate the situation to make you seem wrong (even though you’re not and you know it!).
People who always have to be right are incredibly challenging to live with. You’ll find yourself walking on eggshells around them. They’ll test your patience, cause you immense frustration, and you’ll soon resort to keeping things to yourself instead of attempting to talk to them.
All of these issues are a breeding ground for problems in any relationship.
So how do you live with someone who always thinks they’re right?
Before we get to that, you first need to understand why people behave this way.
