Mindset: Post #7--Love and Mindset
Love and Mindset. Fixed mindsets get hurt easily and are defensive in their relationships. Following being hurt, they want to get revenge. People with growth mindsets are more about understanding, forgiveness, and growth. Fixed mindsets seek instant and perfect relationships (fixed), but growth mindsets, believing it can change with effort, nurture the relationship. Growth mindsets see flaws but don’t paint the entire relationship with the same broad brush. “The trick is to acknowledge [communicate with] each other’s limitations, and build from there” [p. 154].
