109. Balancing positive and negative perspectives in a relationship

Marisol and Adam share that they are currently on lockdown after Neo, their son, tested positive for covid-19. Marisol explains how her birthday plans were effected by the families current health situation and how she is trying to balance finding the positive in the situation (family time, back in the bubble, reconnection) with her negative feelings (disappointment, fear, missing out on extended family and community time). The couple then has a contentious discussion around the balance of reactions and the ability to have your own authentic reaction without overshadowing the space your partner needs to experience their own feelings around a situation.
