How To Communicate Your Need For Space In A Relationship – Jayson Gaddis and Ellen Boeder – 318

Here’s a scenario: You and your partner had a fight or disagreement. You want to talk about it;  they don’t.

Hmmm.

How do you deal?

In this podcast, my wife Ellen and I give you a few tips for you avoidant-types on how to deal with your partner who always wants a connection or wants to talk about it. And the more they press, the more you retreat.

Here’s a critical question I ask space-takers to think about:

Does withdrawing relieve my partner or not? In other words, is my space-taking helpful to my partner and good for our relationship?

Listen in as we unpack this question.
