In our last video, we talked about vulnerability and how important that is in a marriage. While it’s super important, it can’t happen if we aren’t a safe person for our spouse. In today’s video, we’ll talk about how to be a safe person for our spouse so that they can be vulnerable with us. This safety will allow for deeper intimacy.
[0:09] Vulnerability can only happen when we are a safe person for our spouse. We can’t be vulnerable without safety.
[0:35] Being a safe person requires us to truly listen to our spouse and seeking to understand with our hearts.
[1:02] Very little of our communication is our words and most of it is our body language or our tone of voice.
[1:28] Empathize with your spouse
[2:08] Sit with your spouse in the uncomfortable, in the sadness, or in whatever other emotions may arise.
[4:00] This might take some practice. Practice being a safe person and practice engaging in vulnerability with one another.
