Relationship tips to keep your marriage humming!
Can I get a witness?
When your partner is sad or frustrated, you may not feel like you’re doing anything to help by just sitting there, but sometimes it’s enough to just be present and empathize. When we try to problem-solve too soon, we can interfere with intimacy. The goal isn’t necessarily to fix the feelings, it’s to help each other feel less alone. You can foster a strong sense of togetherness simply by being a caring witness to your partner’s negative feelings.
