Ep. 64: Coping with negative news stories as a couple

April 11, 2017

Chloé is feeling physically hurt by the amount of disasters that have been reported online daily.

She's had to ask Jacob to not talk about what he's reading throughout the day because it's too much to process and is physically painful.

We're using the strategy of checking in with each other once a day, so we can still discuss the world and know what the other thinks, without Chloé feeling overwhelmed by information.

Jacob's also been asking "I know you didn't want to hear news right now, but this is really big are you ok if I talk about it right now?" Which gives Chloe the option to say no, and having the option is important.
