    Awesome article, nicely described and explained. I took a print out of this and showed to my partner and the article helped me to rejuvenate the real picture and label our conversations against criticism, contempt, defensiveness, emotional flooding, stonewalling etc and we're now heading to great understanding and well mannered relationship and regain/recognized the respect for each other.
