“Commiseration is a particularly enticing kind of agreement that is so subtle that we can be up to our neck in it before we realize what’s happening. You know how it goes: someone starts complaining about something, and, like the bobble-head doll on the dashboard, you find yourself nodding and agreeing with them – and perhaps even telling a story about how you’ve had some of the same problems they’re talking about. On the surface it seems harmless enough, but underlying it all is the reinforcement of situations that really don’t do anybody any good. It’s just another way we sabotage ourselves.”
Tony Burroughs, in “The Law of Agreement”
