In All Seriousness
In this week’s episode, Jill brought up Tony’s habit of having conversations in his head that he thought they had aloud.
Jill was baffled about what to do about it, but still managed to advise listeners to either choose between making your partner aware of the situation or mess with your mate by making fun of the situation.
She also has other tips:
- Consider whether there is a real issue. It could be something that the two of you laugh about or maybe it is indicative of something a little more serious
- Pick and choose your battles. If it isn’t a real problem, don’t make it one.
- Don’t take yourself so seriously. Live life with light and love.
Meanwhile, although Tony didn’t think he had this issue, he told listeners to not tell their partner if they have imaginary conversations. Of course, the issue is the person having these discussions in their head may not realize it.
He gave the following advice:
- If your partner thinks they have said something to you out loud, but really only thought it, you should bare with them. It’s probably because they feel so connected to you. It’s nothing to worry about.
- Watch their clues of smiling and laughing when they tell you about yourself. That means the situation is funny to them.
- If your partner becomes angry when you discuss it, however, take the issue seriously. Perhaps your partner needs professional help.
