I wrote a guest blog post about how we can address our emotional responses when we're in conflict about money with a partner or family member.
I wrote this for Dr. Keely Kolmes and her blog Mindful Musings. She's conducting a half-day relationship skills worksop, and this guest blog post was one in a series of posts on enhancing relationships to help launch her first workshop.
For many of us, talking about money and recognizing the fear and other feelings that we might be experiencing requires developing a new mindset. If you and your sweetie have the same fight about money on repeat play, this might be helpful.
If you do what you've always done, you'll likely get the same results. Relationship counseling can help develop a new mindset and a new way to connect with your partner when you're unsure how to get unstuck. You're likely to get new results!
