Three Ways To Make Difficult Conversations Easier In Your Relationship

Tune in Thursday, January 14th at 1 p.m. as hosts Tom and Staci Bartley welcome you to Love Shack Live!

“This week on Love Shack Live, we are talking about how we can finally address the elephant in the room. You know that thing that’s been bothering you (maybe for a long time), but you have no idea how to bring up with your partner? That thing,” said Staci.

“Listen, we know that most of us are crammed into our homes with our partners, children and pets, attempting to survive one of the most difficult years of our lives, while we all struggle to be good communicators. This doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but some of the things we are communicating about right now can be draining, and require skills we’ve never learned,” she continued.

Staci says she’s talking about difficult conversations like:

  • You’re furloughed…how do we pay the bills?
  • Who is going supervise Zoom school today?
  • How do we explain these events to the kids?
  • Why do I have to ask you to the dishes… why can’t you just do them?
  • Why do we feel so disconnected when we spending more time together?

Sound familiar? Join Tom and Staci in the Love Shack where we’ll be sharing the three most important things you need to know to make having difficult conversations easier in your relationship.

In this episode we cover several key topics to make having difficult conversations easier, including how to: 

  • Identify the exact words that will help express what’s bothering you;
  • Actually get your point across without hurting your partner’s feelings;
  • Upgrade your communication skills so you can stop feeling misunderstood in your relationships; and
  • Know when you are censoring yourself to protect other people’s emotions instead of sharing how you feel (and what to do instead.)
