Announcer: The following minute is brought to you by Relationship Excellence dot com.
Owen Williams: Welcome to The Relationship Minute. I'm Owen Williams.
Owen Williams: We all need friends. We need friends who we can talk about our relationship with who aren't going to pick up and blame our partner or make them wrong or scapegoat them. But friends who can really listen to us and ask us what we need. How we want to be supported.
Owen Williams: A friend will tell you something that's difficult to hear. The truth if you will. Not that they know the absolute truth, but they have some insight into who we are and how we function. And so being able to share what's going on with a really trusted friend who will challenge us around our own behavior and our own participation, is good for our relationship. Who do you need to confide in?
Owen Williams: Thank you for taking The Relationship Minute and remember it's later than you think.
