    Thanks, Jayson! As usual, some great points made in a short amount of time. Helpful to hear you both discuss how you’re impacting each other in the present moment, and something to put to use immediately – love that- in all relationships. Awesome!

    how to express impact with people who don’t take it well?

    • Sheri

      Yes! That would be my question, too. What if I tell my partner that when he yells at me and get’s all big and threatening, I feel unsafe with my feelings, and he just doesn’t see any need to work on that, but thinks I should grow a bigger skin or that I am just being super sensitive because of my past or whatever (thus ironically kind of proving that I am right not to feel safe with my feelings ;))
      Do I walk out, then?

      I think perhaps “Communication Secrets” might be a helpful masterclass for you to take and learn about communicating with different folks and ways of getting through to guarded/defended individuals: https://relationshipschool.com/communicationsecrets/. I’m sure there are also loads of episodes on the podcast that speak to communication and avoidant-personality structures. Hope this helps and thanks for listening =)

    The connection between Jayson and Joshua was strong and I loved hearing them discuss sharing impact. I’d love to hear more of the two of you discussing relationship topics as well. Although I’m happy to listen to this one several more times over as there was so much in it for me. Thanks.

      Nice, will keep this in mind for future guest episodes. Thanks Nicola =)

  4. Kenneth Telesco

    This is an awesome podcast. Thanks for sharing this great exchange of info with us Jayson. Hearing this podcast, I feel more spacious and relaxed in my body. I also feel more hopeful and because of that I’m encouraged to continue pursuing developing new relation tools and skills in my life.

      I’m so inspired reading this, thanks for sharing Kenneth =)
