In This Episode, You Will Learn:

  • Zero conflict can spell trouble for your relationship (04:29)
  • Everyone has a different communication style—which isn’t necessarily a bad thing (05:29)
  • Your health and happiness in your relationship may be in trouble if you don't learn how to talk about the difficult topics (07:02) 
  • There’s nothing wrong with you if your nature is to avoid conflict, but it isn’t healthy to sweep things under the rug (09:31)
  • A technique to begin cleaning out all that crap under the rug (14:49)
  • This week’s LoveByte (21:05)


Q&A:

  • My partner refuses to talk about difficult things and avoids all conflict. What can I do? Completely avoiding conflict to the detriment of your own happiness isn’t helpful for anyone—it is a problem if you can’t talk about the tough stuff!
