In addition to hosting this morning show, I work in the afternoons as a therapist (Accepting new clients now at Evolve Therapy in Greenwood, IN). On Tuesday mornings I share little nuggets you may be able to use to “tune up” your relationship… hence the name Tune Up Tuesday.
Today, it’s something you may be waiting on, but this is a case where your patience may not pay off. Rather than letting little things build up, waiting for the perfect/right moment to talk about them.. try addressing issues early and often. This doesn’t mean being constantly confrontational. It means being honest with your feelings and letting your partner know when they’ve upset you.
As a therapist who works with a lot of couples, it is often the case that by the time a couple breaks down and makes an appointment with someone like me that at least one member of the couple has so much frustration built up, they’re sort of checked out. Don’t let that be the case in your relationship. Address things as they arise and if you feel like you could use some help, we call could… don’t put that off either.
