    Hi Jean: Many thanks for blogging about my new book, "LOVE Like a BLACK BELT," especially highlighting the section related to the "5 Basic Rules of Conduct" from an ancient martial art system.

    Core values must never be compromised, and I can go so far as to say that a loving, respectful partner will NOT ask you to compromise your core values. As partners, we value, respect and appreciate each other’s values.

    The whole area of compromise is quick sand anyway! Too often people think they have successfully compromised when, in fact, you have done nothing more than give in, give up or settle for something less than what you really wanted/needed.

    Before you engage in a conversation where you will be considering a compromise (something other than your core values!) be absolutely certain you are in the adult part of YOU. That is the part of you that is emotionally mature and emotionally literate.

    Warmly, Dr. Jackie
