Have you ever fought with a loved one because she doesn't seem to understand the scope of a problem or the impact her words or actions have on you and your feelings? Spending hours, days and even years trying to "get through" to someone can be exhausting, and Dr. Robin says sometimes it's just not worth your time. "Not only do they not get it, but sometimes they don't want to get it," she says. "Let it go, accept it for what it is. If you've made a good attempt, you've been respectful and responsible and you've tried, accept that they just don't get it."
Dr. Robin says you should focus on yourself and make sure that you "get it" and that you're living your life with clarity, truth and honesty. "Once you get the truth … you can make an informed, empowered and impassioned decision about what it is you need to do to change and transform your life," she says.
