Dealing with difficult behaviour (PAPD)

I am currently working with someone who has just, after 6 months of agony, ended another, as she would put it, ‘impossible relationship’ saying ‘why do I go for the same type of man everytime? It’s like I’m stuck in some kind of syndrome. Will the next one be the same? Are the only options submit, fight or flight’.

I am also working with someone who has been stuck in the same syndrome and has broken the cycle by managing her relationship differently. She has learnt to set her own boundaries, stick to them and grow her self-esteem without, as she would say ‘compromising my self respect and values’.

She uses coaching to strengthen her resolve, find strategies and boost her understanding and self-confidence. She says ‘ having a coach, someone to confide in whom you know will never go negative on you, has been like a breath of fresh air. It’s given me the freedom to ‘engage brain’ over feeling trapped and undermined by my own values!.

She has asked me to share one of her sources for getting to this point: Living with the Passive Aggressive Man, by Scott Wetzler.

I’ve found another link that try’s to express the man’s perspective in relationships – not just the ‘passive aggressive’ man: Five Ways Women Ruin Their Chances With Men

The clue is in the title. Helpful though, in a number of ways.
