Hello, friends. In this episode, I answer questions on how to get started with tasks that you find yourself avoiding, and whether a lack of compromise in your relationship is a deal-breaker when it comes to the way you express your love.
I have been working for a while to find the right combination of medication for my anxiety, depression, and PTSD, and feel like I have found a good combination that has greatly helped. However, I am still struggling with starting tasks such as homework, housework, and work for my job but do not feel like it is due to any of the previously listed conditions as it does not feel the same but do not know how to help myself start tasks that need to be done. I love your show and have listened to every episode! I am currently working on my Masters in licensed mental health counseling so love hearing all the things you have to say!
I have someone I love. I’ve been with them for over 4 years. His love language is acts of service. Mine is words of affirmation. He has told me recently he can’t give me words of affirmation. Is this a deal breaker? The logical part of my brain says if you love someone and want to make it work, then you compromise. You meet in the middle. You attempt to meet their needs. The logical part of my brain says if I were the right person then he would try to speak to me in my language and I would try to speak to him in his language.
