Season 2/ Episode 25: Everyone Dislikes Something
In All Seriousness
The Problem with Going to the Grocery Store
In this week’s episode, Jill talked about the one thing she despises doing, even though it’s a necessity: going to the grocery store.
How do she and Tony handle that as a couple?
Tony told listeners that if they view a task as a chore, then invite your partner with you. In the end, you both may view it as an enjoyable outing.
Jill said you can choose to not go, but you can also try to make it fun for yourself.
The two have advice for the times one person in the relationship wants to do things the other would rather avoid:
- Try it at least once. After that, you and your partner will both know whether it is likely you will do it again.
- If you find the activity is important to your partner, go to show you are a supportive partner
- Remember that compromising is key in any relationship
What have you done when your partner wanted you to participate in an activity that you had no desire to do whatsoever? Leave your answers in the comments section. We enjoy hearing from you.
