206: When Your Partner Won’t Do The Work

Relationships take work. That’s why you’re here listening to this podcast. One thing you may be running into is an issue with your partner not wanting to work on the relationship with you. They may be resistant, indifferent or simply too busy. Listen to today’s show to learn what to do when your partner is not putting in the relationship work with you.

In this episode, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Learn the importance of not trying to change your partner and instead make the changes yourself
  • The value of scheduling ‘protected time’ to discuss issues with your partner
  • The three big emotions we deny ourselves from expressing and how to communicate them
  • How to communicate with your partner surrounding your desires to improve the relationship
  • And much more!

Laura Dabney, MD has made a career of taking on psychiatry’s toughest challenges—from treating complex, combined medical and psychological conditions, to ensuring the absolute privacy of powerful, high-profile patients. Dr. Dabney‘s patients come to her for many reasons: depression and anxiety, recent break-ups or a lifetime of toxic relationships. Yet, despite the problems that brought them through her door, they describe her in the same terms again and again, calling her warm, knowledgeable, and committed to their success.
