Make It Safe


Obviously, Elena is acting as if she s still feeling unsafe. Ricky will have to continue using his safety skills: Reestablishing Mutual Purpose and using Contrasting. Here is how the confrontation proceeds:

Ricky: Elena, I know it might sound paranoid . To be truthful , I don t know what s going on. As I ve thought about it, I don t think you re cheating and I m sorry to make it sound that way. But I m seeing enough similarities that I can t not worry. I need to talk this through both to find out what s really going on and to find a way to keep my concerns from getting in the way of our relationship. I don t mean to be offensive, but not talking about it won t work for me. Can we please talk?

Elena: I ll try. This is pretty hard to listen to.
