How to approach and handle difficult conversations in your relationship

It was 2015 and I started to realise over many conversations with many men about their challenges and things they were facing in their lives that I was answering their pleas for advice and support with the same answer (thereabouts) – ‘Have you tried having a conversation about that?’

 

What became apparent to me was that something that had become pretty bloody normal and easy (easiER) for me – to connect to the conversation I needed to have despite the discomfort the idea of that conversation might bring with it – others just weren’t even contemplating.

 

It was THE answer to most of the things challenging these men; go and talk to your partner about that thing, share what you need with your father, ask your boss for a raise instead of bending over backwards behind the scene hoping they notice all your passive attempts to have your value noticed.

 

You know?

 

From this idea another one formed; men aren’t having the conversations we need to have, we’re sticking on the surface where it seems safe and our lives are constant windows into the consequences.

 

That gave birth to Beyond The Beers – Taking a beer with mates to new depths and actually talking about the shit that matters. BTB started as a show and then became a series of live events bringing men together and taking action on the shit that matters and visiting our own depths so we can more securely do so in our lives.

 

In this Episode:

That is essentially what led to this podcast and a lot of my work now; supporting me in going to their depths.

 

In this week’s episode, I have revisited an older Q&A question about having challenging conversations in our relationships and I have expanded on it with some personal experience.

 

The thing about a tough conversation si that it’s very rarely as bad as we make it out to be beforehand.

 

So in this episode, I explore this and how to do it.

 

I trust you’ll gain something from this.
