I Don’t Feel Appreciated in My Relationship

ANONYMOUS: “Hello, I wanted to ask you about my husband. He does NOT help me with anything. I have to lock myself in my room just so he will help me with our child, or, I have to be sick. When I express myself to him, he says he worked all day! Well, does he not know all I do is clean and cook for him? He does not know how hard it is to NOT have friends, or to go out without the baby. I need help!… And I don’t know what to do!”

Regardless of if you have kids or not, one of the most COMMON complaints I hear in relationships are that BOTH people aren’t feeling appreciated in their relationships.

As much as you think this feeling is one sided, I am here to let you know that it’s not.

The truth is, if you are feeling under appreciated in your relationship, your partner is likely feeling the same way. But how do we close the gap?

In this Snapchat lesson I get into a simple way to communicate, with actually having to … well… COMMUNICATE. Let’s be real, the last thing you want to do when you both aren’t feeling good is to have a “Come to Jesus” talk about what’s NOT working, instead, there’s something easier… PRESS PLAY and I’m curious to hear what you think, so COMMENT below.

PS: If you don’t follow me on Snapchat, make sure you do! We have a family going on there and we’d love for you join!

  • This makes so much sense that “communication” doesn’t always have to be talking about what we think each other needs to change or do! I ALWAYS here the “you just have to communicate”… but I love the idea of actually reconnecting and spending time together instead of confronting each other with an overload of emotions, because when I feel like “we need to talk” then there is obviously disconnection!
    I am definitely guilt of the ‘tally sheet’ and I didn’t even realise; which always frustrates me, and I don’t like being in that mindset!

    Thank you soooo much! I’m a 20 year old Aussie who has been with my beautiful boyfriend for 2 and a half years, and I love him so much, you are right though, it can be hard to stay connected, especially when we are not living together and we both have high demands from his work and my university and business! Your lessons make a better person and girlfriend <3 I love your snapchats, but I missed these videos so thank you for uploading this!
