You are a Bette -- "I must be strong"

How to Get Along with Me

    How to Get Along with Me

    * * Stand up for yourself... and me.
    * * Be confident, strong, and direct.
    * * Don't gossip about me or betray my trust.
    * * Be vulnerable and share your feelings. See and acknowledge my tender, vulnerable side.
    * * Give me space to be alone.
    * * Acknowledge the contributions I make, but don't flatter me.
    * * I often speak in an assertive way. Don't automatically assume it's a personal attack.
    * * When I scream, curse, and stomp around, try to remember that's just the way I am.
