Are You Emotionally Available?
- Emotional Validation It makes so much sense to me you would be angry.
- Permission to Feel Pain Letting your partner feel emotional pain without trying to make the pain go away.
- Sharing Your Vulnerability What you see is frustration on the outside, but on the inside, I’m feeling devastated and powerless.
- Making Space Spending distraction-free time together to allow space for deeper conversations.
- Being Authentic It’s not that I don’t want to share my feelings with you, it’s just that sometimes I don’t know what they are.
- Presence I’m not sure what to say right now to help, so I’m just going to sit here with you. I’m right here.
