episode 52/ SEASON 3
Yours, Mine and Ours. Part 1
This week the therapists work hard to figure out what’s yours, mine and ours regarding feelings and responsibility for action in relationships.
It can be really tricky to pull that knot apart and really understand what we ourselves are responsible for in our relationships. Typically we are responsible for our own feelings, and for communicating those feelings to our partners, but faulty messages from family of origin can create enmeshment, confusion, guilt and resentment around responsibility for our own feelings and needs.
Listen in as the therapists learn to de-tangle their own confusion and help listeners do the same for their own lives.
