Holding people accountable

Hi Brooke,

It’s Jen again – who wrote about how to deal with other people feeling bad when you hold them accountable for their behavior. What I mean is, that if I hold my husband accountable for something he did, and that pisses him off or makes him upset, do I just say, “I understand, and that’s a thought you’re having.” How do I help loved ones through their emotions after I hold them accountable for something they did?

Does that make it any clearer?
THanks, Jen
