Season 3 Episode 3: When Your Partner Makes it All About Them

In this week’s podcast, I answer your question.

Q. Dear Dr. Tracy. Every time I try to share something with my partner, he goes and makes it about himself. Recently, I was trying to share about an issue with my sister. He got so heated and upset – we’ve had frequent conflict about my sister – that I ended up stop asking for the support that I needed. I’m not sure what to do in these moments, but I do know that resentment is building up and it doesn’t feel good.
– Nicole

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Different ways to approach a conversation
  • Recognizing why your partner might do this
  • How to respond at two different times

Looking for more:

Lovely Addition to Personal + Couple’s Therapy

“I recently started therapy for not only myself but for my marriage as well. This podcast is such a lovely addition. I listen every time I’m doing chores so that these mundane tasks I used to view as miserable and boring are now a chance for me to learn and feel validated therefore not only am I bettering my life but I’m keeping up on my chores! Such great motivation to keep myself GOING because depression has swallowed me whole in the past. It’s easy to slip away if you don’t have a clear path for getting better. Highly recommend this podcast to EVERYONE!” ~ Joannnnnnnnna
