It’s not about the nail- a lesson in empathy for couples

This is one of the funniest & most realistic videos about couple communication I’ve seen in a while.{thank you Jason Headley!}  It really needs no introduction so I will just say {especially to the guys out there} watch & enjoy… {title} via @jason_headley {permalink}


It’s Not About the Nail from Jason Headley on Vimeo.“Don’t try to fix it. I just need you to listen.” Every man has heard these words.

If you watched the video and thought “this is totally ridiculous… and yet very, very familiar”;  then you will love mycouples classes!  Because I get it- this is what communication is like for most couples but thankfully I have some strategies to help you out.

More often than not the reason for conflict is not that you don’t love each other or can’t agree; it’s that you are approaching the same concern from two very different communication styles.  Neither is right or wrong but helping to bridge that gap is what turns good relationships into A-MAZING relationships.

Tell me about a time when you or your partner was trying to “fix” the problem while the other person just needed to be heard.  How did you resolve it?  Do you have a secret strategy for making these kinds of conversations go better?
