Hi thanks for your message. What does it mean: do not own your partner's shortcomings.
Sorry can't get it translated.
Basically is a reference to mean: that you are not at fault for the faults,mistakes of others.
Offer advice but do not feel responsible for these mistakes.
We cannot be responsible for the faults of others. In this case, if your spouse or significant other has faults that affect behavior or cause insecurities, it is ultimately, "their issue". A husband cannot blame himself if his wife is a compulsive liar. Perhaps a child has a parent that drinks too much and they allow it to be a reflection on them. I believe that we have to each fight our own battles (demons) and if we are lucky enough to have someone love us and walk beside us despite our faults, we truly are blessed. Let's face it, we all have faults.... this could really be a Hub in itself. Good question!
