Congratulations on completing our 60 second quiz! So now you know the danger of contempt - but what is contempt and how can you prevent it?
In short (and I mean really short), contempt is when you put your partner beneath you and think they are ‘less than’. It can be particularly destructive when it spirals into a sense of superiority. The scary news is that contempt often grows slowly over time. The good news is that it can be prevented with a few very simple concepts - gratitude, appreciation, and assuming best intent.
You can try this out right this moment. Open your phone and text your partner 1 thing they’ve done in the past 48 hours that you appreciate. It can be as small as saying good morning, but don’t wait, send it right now.
