Sarah and Therapy Jeff have been talking a lot about grief and how to deal with it when a relationship ends. Now, they're shifting gears a bit to talk about how to make sure your next relationship is a healing one. We all have fears and insecurities that follow us from one relationship into the next, but as Sarah says in this week's episode, "rather than letting those fears and worries and doubts grow legs," it's important to get them out in the open before they become too overwhelming to address. To help do this, Jeff poses ten questions you can ask yourself and your partner at the start of a new relationship to make sure you're both feeling safe, seen, and supported. Questions like, "What didn't you hear enough of in your last relationship that you would like to hear more of in this one?" and "What's your biggest relationship fear?" These questions might be just a bit too intense for the first date, but you'll definitely want to keep them in your back pocket so you can pull them out on the fifth or sixth. We also learn a lot about our hosts this week, like what animated children's movie the two share a deep love for, and why you shouldn't bother inviting Sarah to Coachella.
We want to hear from you! Let us know what's on your mind:
