The Opposite of Little Finger Rule

 

For those who may not be familiar with the character, “Little Finger,” he is one of the many villainous characters in the HBO series, Game of Thrones.

 

Knowing that, here’s how he ties into therapy!

 

Yesterday in a session, I was talking with a client and we’re discussing how to best communicate in a relationship. My advice to him is to “always assume the best intentions” and seek to find them in your partner.

 

He says to me, “so basically the opposite of what Little Finger does.”

 

“Yes!” I respond. “That’s exactly it!”

 

In relationships, do the exact opposite of Little Finger and you’re on the right path!
