Is it Love or just Emotional Fusing that you are experiencing in your relationship?
When we grow up in family systems that didn't foster and support our right to individuality, we learn that love involves unhealthy fusing. (Eg: When mum was unhappy, everyone was unhappy!)
This episode draws from the wonderful work of Dr David Schnarch and in particular his book Passionate Marriage.
The episode goes through some elements of unhealthy emotional fusing dynamics and how it leads to couples feeling alienated from one another.
This episode is designed to point out some of the exchanges to avoid so that we are able to have a truly wonderful and meaningful connection in our relationships, taking our relational experience to a whole other level!
