What Diane Sawyer passes along in this clip is nothing earth-shaking, but it touched me: “A criticism is just a really bad way of making a request, so why don’t you just make a request?” I’ve rarely done this because most married partners (a) tend to see such a request (i.e., “could you maybe think about modifying this or that behavioral trait?”) as an assault upon their magnificence and (b) lack the humility or the character to modify anything about themselves in the first place unless it’s alcohol-related. But you never know with people. The best thing is probably to say nothing. Just tough it out.
