‘People who think that because I’m a woman, I will make tea, wash up and hoover.’
I am feeling…..Annoyed / Disrespected / Taken for Granted
Step 1. (How I would like to feel…)
Equal / Fair Exchange / Respected
Step 2. (Quality Questions for self…)
How do we change the habits that have been created?
Am I responsible for ‘just doing it’?
Do we need to create new boundaries, ground rules?
Have I ‘allowed’ this situation to evolve?
Step 3. (Practical steps leading to Positive Results…)
Have a conversation using ‘I’ messages, around how this behaviour makes you feel.
Take responsibility for changing the situation.
Start saying ‘No’, instead of letting your resentment build up.
