Food for thought all round here, but if you're SO points out a shortcoming of yours that you have already recognised, and are taking steps to improve it, do you get dejected and hurt, or are you more inspired to fix it? Or more the point, if they point out something that you AREN'T taking steps to improve do you get more wounded and hurt/upset that they have bought it to light?
By the same stretch of things, perhaps it is a trait they do not like in you, that you actually like about yourself, for example, you are a social butterfly and enjoy innocent flirting, and they don't like it because they feel it devalues them..... or you are a bit of a 'lad' who likes to have a joke and pull the odd prank, and they value seriousness..... or you are very focused and serious about your work and career and they think that parties and late nights make the world go round? Drinker vs non drinker, smoker vs non smoker, the list can be endless.
Do you get more annoyed when asked to change something that you have recognised needs changing, but haven't attempted to, or something that they think needs changing and you really like that part of you so REALLY don't want to?
I don't want answers to everything, just a discussion about it all in general!
