“Think about two difficult people in your life. Identify the behaviors of these difficult people. Ask yourself if you could possibly be rewarding these difficult people. Would they describe you as the difficult person? If so, what would they say?”
I don't have a problem with confrontation, but I find I often don't tend to say what I should have said at the time. I just don't want to rock the boat sometimes - so in that way, probably I facilitate the behavior I don't like.

I will confront people ( with EVERY intention of winning the confrontation) if they catch me unawares so that I just 'react'. If I have time to think things through in advance I tend to be more conciliatory or at least more diplomatic.
I'm currently following a trial on TV & find the defendant a VERY difficult person. She is accused of killing her ex-boyfriend & she could be put to death. She claims (in her third story about it) that it was self-defense - although she shot him in the face, stabbed him 29 times & slit his throat! I'm addicted to the trial although it bothers my stomach to watch it! (So who is more 'mental' me or her!!)
