Episode 188: When Help is the Sunny Side of Control

Episode 188: When Help is the Sunny Side of Control

I recently had an experience with a child that made me think about the difference between helping and fixing. Helping someone is something we do when they ask for it. Fixing is something we do to make ourselves feel better. And if you listened to last week’s podcast, you’ll know that control is just a way to make ourselves feel better. So, listen to this episode and find out how to notice when you’re trying to fix things for someone else to make yourself feel better and what you can do instead.

Ready to stop feeling angry at your husband

before he even walks through the door at night?

Not keeping score doesn’t require you to keep quiet and silently seeth while doing everything on your own. It does help you let go of anger and resentment and focus on solutions instead of scoreboards. It means you make room for working together instead of feeling isolated and alone.
