Tension – Conflict in Marriage

Episode Description

This podcast begins to explore the various ways our immaturities are managed in marriage. In my book Growing Yourself Up, I refer to these patterns as ‘maturity detours’.

This podcast looks at the dance of conflict and distance between spouses. Lifting up out of this intense pattern of attacking and defending requires a spouse to speak to their own experience and want to understand the separate experience of the other. The work of growing up in relationships always involves taking the focus of the other and representing ourselves more clearly and calmly – never easy for us self-absorbed humans to achieve.
