Do You Need a Hug, Help, or to Be Heard?
June 18, 2024 - 31 min
When someone we love needs support, jumping into advice-giving mode is easy. Instead, we should ask these three powerful questions before dishing out solutions: Do you need a hug? Do you need help? Do you need to be heard? Beginning conversations with these questions deepens our connection and communicates respect, trust, and genuine concern. Recently, one of my marriage coaching clients shared that he started asking his wife three questions when he felt she needed his support. I’m calling it the "hug, help, hear" framework.  Listen to today’s episode as I share personal stories about maintaining boundaries, empathic listening, and fostering genuine connections in relationships.   Resources Mentioned in this Episode:  Get your FREE Conversation Starters Guide for Communicating in Conflict here.  Episode 89: 7 Steps to Become a Better Listener    Find the full show notes at rebuildinguspodcast.com.  **If you like the show, please leave a review!

June 14, 2024 - 12 min
Today's Q&A is from a listener who believes their marriage is at a breaking point and needs advice on how to tell their spouse they want a divorce. Knowing little about the fallout of this marriage, I first encourage every couple in this situation to re-evaluate your marriage. Oftentimes, your marriage is not as far gone as you may believe. The fact that one spouse is asking how to tell their spouse they want a divorce leads me to believe the divorce is not mutual. Listen as I share a perspective on this very important conversation.  ALSO LISTEN TO: Ep. 245: 5 Boxes to Check Before You Divorce - with Dr. Kim Kimberling Links Mentioned in this Episode: 🔗Get your FREE Conversation Starters for Communicating in Conflict Here.   **If you like the show, please leave a review!
