I see it all the time when couples are arguing.
Partners spin so fast, desperately trying to make their points, so they can be heard, seen and understood, leaving little room for the other to be heard, seen or understood.
Relationships are like mirrors. We often get what we give.
We all need to feel heard, seen and understood, but when it becomes a race between partners to be the first to be heard, seen or understood, no one wins.
In this video, I’ll explain what a secret weapon is to getting out of that terrible race together.
This secret weapon, which goes above and beyond actually listening to each other (that whole listening thing is something you need to master too), will help you take the sting out of any argument. It is what’s needed so that you can both actually start to feel heard, seen and understood by each other.
Maybe this is obvious, but it’s a reminder that we all need when things get heated (not in a good way) with our significant other.
So, be the hero and start implementing this in your relationship today.
Let me know how it goes in the comments below.
Cheers to thriving in business & love,
Sometimes the way someone says something to me makes me think they’re trying to get something from me – you know, that that’s why they’re being nice (or what I perceive as being overly nice). I’ve found that this is true sometimes with certain people and I don’t like it and it makes me not want to play ball so to speak. Any suggestions about how I could approach this problem?

Thanks for your comment. If you know specific people who do this (and it’s not just you being mistrusting) and it makes you not play ball with them, I would suggest not playing ball! There are lots more people out there who are genuinely kind and not trying to manipulate you. Go hang out with them. 🙂
