When our partners are not responsive, it can feel like we are playing tennis with no one hitting the ball back. It quickly gets lonely.
If this is happening in your relationship, now is the time to get curious about what is going on. Was it always like this? If it has changed, what changed? Can you tell your partner that you would like more responsiveness and precisely what that might look and feel like?
If we do nothing, we risk playing tennis alone, having our bids for connection ignored, we risk growing resentments.
If you value your relationship, these difficult conversations are worth having.
