223: Stop Arguing, Start Connecting

No one wants to be wrong. Two individuals often feel they can’t both be ‘right’ when resolving conflict. Learning to hold the needs and feeling of both partners at the same time is a key element to relationship success. Listen to today’s show to learn how to stop arguing and take your relationship from ‘me’ to ‘we’.

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

  • How to prevent moments of disconnect from accumulating and creating a toxic relationship
  • Understanding that ‘you don’t know what you don’t know’ when it comes to what you need to work on in your relationship
  • Why we argue with our partner
  • How to empathize with your partner to move from ‘me’ to ‘we’
  • Key promises to make your partner to take ownership of your relationship and move forward with positivity
  • And much more!

Maureen Hosier is a licensed psychologist, specializing in the troubled dynamics of individuals in their romantic relationships and in their family and work place relationships. Maureen and her sister, Berta Hosier Conger, co-authored two books titled, You’ll Do Anything for Her and You’ll Do Anything for Him. They look at a common issue for many in relationship, both men and women, who give up themselves to make the relationship work. They have developed a framework for understanding the dynamics of individuals who find themselves stuck in an emotionally reactive and emotionally painful situation with their partner and who are frightened that they are destroying their relationship.
