If you’re like most people, it can be damn-near devastating to watch someone you love dearly go through a rough and difficult time. A listener recently wrote into the show with one such dilemma as her husband has become increasing depressed after being thrown some unfortunate work/career curve-balls.
Maybe you can relate. Maybe you’ve found yourself in a sitch where your partner is straight bummed-the-fuck out about a friendship, a rocky work relationship, a health issue, or some other challenge that you deeeeesperately want to fix. Like, yesterday.
It can be incredibly counter intuitive to simply allow your partner to wade through these murky waters alone, while you sit idly by feeling massively helpless. In this episode, I discuss 5 key concepts you must keep in mind if you want to get through this rough chapter stronger and closer than ever. I’m not saying it’s easy, but there are definitely things you can do to keep your cool, support your love, and take care of the both of you through this trying time.
This pod explores:
- The absolute FIRST question you must ask your spouse if you want to be any kind of helpful (hint: it’s super easy, yet you probably haven’t done it.)
- Why you do not need to fix the problem and what to say/do instead (and trying to fix it is likely making it worse)
- How to ask for what you need and get your needs met… even if it’s not by you partner (wait, what!? yep.)
- The ridiculous notion of “not taking it personally” and how to battle the responsibility you feel
