We’ve all had moments where we look at a loved one and think, “WTF?” It could be something they said or did that makes us feel confused, angry, or hurt, and often disconnected.
In episode 7 of The Happy Wanderers Podcast, Matt and Sunaina share a powerful way to reconnect: by understanding the needs the other person is trying to meet in that moment. Matt and Sunaina share examples of their prior conflicts (juicy!) and how needs can be found underneath (apparently!) bizarre behavior. In an upcoming episode, they’ll demonstrate how to use dialogue and empathy to uncover underlying needs and reconnect even in the midst of a “relationship WTF.”
This needs sheet can help you explore what needs you think another person is trying to meet by behaving in a way that confuses you. It really is a cheat sheet to life and relationships!
