TRACK 2: Although this couple has a good marriage, being sensitive to rejection can be hazardous to relationships. Expect rejection, and you're more likely to see it, even if it isn't there. Then you're more likely to either withdraw or attack your partner, creating a problem, when they're wasn't one to begin with. What to do? Well, take a lesson from this gal.
SOT: Personally, I think gaining a little bit of emotional distance, not denying your emotions, but actually looking at

them more as a kind of a little spectator on your shoulder. TRACK 3: This recent study in a journal of the American Psychological Association, agrees. The key for you sensitive types? Count to 10 or go for a walk before you react. If you can cool down rather than react impulsively, you're less likely to cause an unnecessary problem. SUPER: DR. STEVE BRODY/PSYCHOLOGIST STAND-UP: Early on in the study, researchers offered 4-year-olds either one marshmallow now or two if they could wait. They then interviewed the same kids when they were 16 and again when they were 25 to 30. Those who were able to wait were able to handle rejection with greater responsibility and effectiveness. Score another one for impulse control and delaying gratification. TRACK 4: So what does all this mean for you and your relationship? Well, if you're sensitive to feeling rejected, learn how to calm down before reacting. It'll help prevent things from blowing up. Dr. Steve Brody for CBS News. ))
