How to Protect Each Other When You're Vulnerable
Virtual Mini-Workshop for Couples,
On Your Time, From Your Couch
In our relationships, we can all get mad and triggered. We get frustrated and raise our voices. Most of us would probably admit that we get angry. What’s more challenging to admit is that we often feel terrified and vulnerable, even in an otherwise loving relationship.
In this workshop, you will learn:
Protect and care for each other in vulnerable situations
Identify exactly what you need when you’re scared or upset
Give your partner what they need to soften and feel safe
Embrace the “little kid” inside of you and your partner
Talk to each other in the middle of upset
Be each other’s safe haven
When: Anytime you like
Where: Your couch, kitchen table, or bedroom
Cost: $24.95/month per couple

How Can You Protect Each Other When You're Vulnerable In Your Relationship?
Loving someone with all your heart is a wonderful and scary proposition. When you let someone in, there’s always a risk of getting hurt and rejected. As “responsible adults”, we tend to shut off our scared and vulnerable side, so we can get on with life. But instead of dealing directly with our vulnerability, we express it in indirect ways, such as…
Get mad and yell at each other
Shut down and stop sharing
Get “all business” and no tenderness
Turn away from each other
Act like roommates instead of lovers
Feel depressed and empty inside
You Can Learn to Protect Each Other when You're Vulnerable.
If you don’t find a soft place to land with each other after an upset, you become more guarded. If this keeps going, your guardedness can turn into a permanent wall between you. No one wants to land in that situation!
So what’s the solution? It’s to become comfortable with, or at least open to, the scared, vulnerable part of yourself and your partner. The solution is to cultivate a relationship where it’s safe and accepted – perhaps even celebrated – to be powerful AND vulnerable, resourceful AND weak, courageous AND scared.
This may sound like a daunting task. A hallmark of The LoveWorks Solution is that we take seemingly complicated aspects of relationships and make them doable and practical. This mini-workshop is just like that. We will guide you through a safe step-by-step process for how to care for and protect each other when you’re feeling scared or vulnerable. You’ll learn the tools to do this on your own.
