14 Apr 5 COMMON RELATIONSHIP PITFALLS + HOW TO AVOID THEM – PART 1 [TJJS:EP296]
Ever find yourself thinking, “If my husband would just get his shit together, this relationship would be fine”? Or maybe you find yourself keeping score? Like, if he isn’t initiating sex, why should I? Or, if he can’t pick up his shit, why should I? And, then maybe you do passive-aggressive moves like let dishes pile up for 3 weeks or some other shit to “prove a point”… which OF COURSE leads to a huge fight where you both blame each other. Hmmm. How did I know? Because you are sooooo not alone.
You wanna know why? Because no one ever taught you how to communicate in a healthy way. We learn most of our relationship habits from trial and error, our parental examples, or media… all of which suck. Well… your parents may not suck, but you get my point. We rarely have sound instruction on how to express our needs, how to communicate with one another, and how to resolve conflict. If you find yourself struggling in any of these areas, this episode will give you an arsenal of tools and ideas to make major changes in your relationship TODAY.
This pod explores:
- Why timing is everything when you express your needs
- How to know what your partner really needs/wants from you
- How to make your relationship a priority… like, for real
- Why having good relationship “manners” could dramatically change your relationship
