I guess the irony is that I judge him for his unconsciousness, but I'm very unconscious of being judgmental
Ever feel like your partner just tunes you out? Dr. Margaret Paul dives into this common relationship issue in this episode of Inner Bonding. She shares the story of Astrid and Jacob, a couple struggling with communication breakdowns. Dr. Margaret reveals that Astrid's judgmental attitude towards Jacob is a key factor in his tendency to 'go unconscious'. It's not just about tuning out; it's a defence mechanism learned from his upbringing.
Astrid learns to recognise her own judgmental behaviour and its impact on Jacob, leading to a transformation in their relationship. They both start practicing Inner Bonding techniques, which help them understand and change their patterns of behaviour. As they each take responsibility for their own actions, their relationship blossoms. This episode also touches on other couples facing similar issues and offers practical advice on how to break these toxic cycles.
If you're struggling with feeling unheard or dealing with a partner who shuts down, this episode provides valuable insights and tools to help you both reconnect. Tune in to understand how taking responsibility for your own actions can lead to healthier, more loving relationships.
