#34 - What is Emotional Load, and Why do Women Carry Most of It

Jenny Morrow and Bryce Bauer
In this episode, Bryce and Jenny talk about why women carry the bulk of the Emotional Load.
Show Notes

In this episode, Bryce asks Jenny about the term "Emotional Load" and why women tend to carry the bulk of it.  It's not that men are completely oblivious or that women ask too much.  For most couples, they don't even know exactly what it is they are needing and they don't have language for it.  There's a reason why "just tell me what to do" doesn't work in partnership.  Bryce and Jenny tackle this topic, head on, by diving right into the dynamics of how the emotional load affects their relationship and what they hear from many of the clients they work with.  They also speak to the different ways that couples miss each other and how both parties can have more skillful conversation around the planning, remembering, and feeling of life events.
