Your Emotional Needs Not Being Met in Relationships

By Alan Robarge

In this video, Alan Robarge, Relationship Coach, talks about what happens when our emotional needs go unmet in relationships. Many of us lose ourselves in deep disappointment when our partner becomes emotionally distant. We then often expect our partner to take care of our uncomfortable feelings by giving us the emotional connection we desire (or even deserve).

The truth is however that in those difficult moments it is our job to take care of our own distress. We must learn the skills of self-soothing. We must learn not to demand that our partner be responsible for our uncomfortable, painful, prickly, panicky feeling states. This can be challenging when the reality is that the relationship lacks depth of emotional engagement.
