Checking Your Egos At The Door

Are you a nagger?  Are you constantly finding fault with your spouse over what they wear, how they answer questions, the language they use?  Do you feel you are always right and better than your spouse?  The French could soon be headed to court if the new bill criminalizing "psychlogical violence" becomes law. 

The Sarkozy government is aiming to combat bullying and verbal abuse in relationships however it appears to be so broad in scope it could end up finding illegal abuse in almost every relationship.

How many couple do we know constantly appear to be digging each other in public yet share a private closeness that has glued them together for 30 years or more?  No question psychological abuse is an issue that needs to be taken seriously, but, don't enact legislation giving every squabbling couple a change to air their dirty laundry and tie up the courst for those who really need help!

We see agents belittle fellow agents and the end result makes us all look bad in front of the consuming collagepublic.  We are made up of diverse backgrounds, education levels, sizes and personalities but the common goal should always be helping the consumer have a great "real estate experience".  Everyone has their own style in communicating and no one is right or wrong in their delivery.  We all need to learn to play in the sandbox together minus our egos!

This is great advice for everyone: Realtors, spouses, co-workers, ets.  What a nightmare a law like that would be!

Dorie, this is truly scary.  Sounds like the French are out of control again, just like during the their Revolution a couple of years ago.  What ever happened to Freedom of Speech?

Hi Pat,

It is important to focus on the transaction and be problem solvers to make things work. We don't need egos getting the way!

Hi Dawn,

I can't even imagine the kinds of suits the courts would be filled with if this law passes. Way too broad in interpretation.

Hi Craig,

What ever happened to taking responsibility for yourself and your actions..do we need government to sanction everything in our lives?

I wish people would remember this in business, my best friend told me once that "Your ego is NOT your amigo" and it's the truth. Heck, lets get this done without the drama or whatever. ;-)

Hi Dorie!  EXCELLENT advice all around!  Certainly putting our best foot forward AND our best ATTITUDE forward is better, not only in business but, in our personal relationships as well.  Life's just too short to be a NAG!

Dorie, Bitchie folks are a real bummer. I do know a lot of folks that have a big "E" but very little "go"...

Helping you help others live their American dream...

Hi Dorie, I think such a law would only be enforced against a truly verbally abusive spouse, and hopefully would not extend to people who really are bonded together -  - - as for our fellow agents belittling others, I cringe when I read so much on public posts, it really does make us all look bad. Thanks for this post, we need to remember it and play nice in the sandbox of life:-)

Hi Mary,

I cringe also..its good to have a difference of opinion but not when we start belittling others. It applies to all segments of our lives.
