E013: Marriage on the Line – Zoom Case Study

Subscribe to Podcast

In this episode of the TC podcast, we’ve got a real live Tough Conversation for you to listen in on. One of the attendees to my free weekly Tough Conversations Roleplay Zoom call, let’s call him ‘Bill’, has a big problem: he needs something BIG from his partner, or their marriage may need to end.

“Suffering is a voluntary exercise.”

– Bill

Listen in for:

  • The SUPER tough conversation Bill needs to have
  • The great outcome he’s really looking forward to – even if nothing gets resolved!
  • The need for empathy FIRST
  • Why the other person may not be in a space to hear you
  • The benefit of roleplaying the Tough Conversation beforehand
  • The hard pill Bill realized he has to swallow
  • The tough conversation Bill had to have with himself
  • How he realized he has more power than he felt he had
  • How he can speak up for his own needs when his wife is going through such a difficult time
  • How he came to respect his wife’s agency and the two key realizations he had because of it
  • and Bill’s clever disguise to preserve his anonymity.

“Tough conversations require work and practice”

-Bill
