Better mental health starts with Headspace

(soft music) Headspace Studios. Hi folks. Welcome to our very special Valentine's Day episode of Dear Headspace. I am so excited. Today I gonna be answering your questions with my pal, Rosie and oh ooh. We have a slew of questions and they're all about relationships. We'll be talking about how to support a partner who processes things differently than yourself, improving communications in marriage. Oh, and we also have a question about how to forgive yourself after a breakup. Buckle up, the show starts now. (soft music) Have you ever wished you had a wise meditation teacher how on speed dial? Someone you can call after a long day? Someone you could lean on for their advice? Someone to listen and help you to see things differently. Welcome to Dear Headspace, a podcast where I sit with a meditation teacher and we answer your questions. Rosie, all right, here we are. And we are getting into relationships today. We are. And on this special Valentine's Day episode. I'm so excited to be here with you. Aw, me too. I mean, listen, I can't wait to talk about love and all that comes with it. So I'm just gonna ask you this question. Are you ready, Rosie? I'm ready. Okay, all right. Here is our first question from Danny. Hi, I'm Danny from the Philippines and I've been using Headspace since 2019. My question is, how do I support my partner whose way of processing feelings and emotions and other stuff that happens to her in life is to be by herself? I process stuff by talking it out with people, so we have a total opposite way of dealing with things. I want to be more present for her, but sometimes it can be frustrating, especially since we're in a long distance relationship and communication is key in maintaining our relationship. I understand that different people have different ways of processing things, so I just want to know how to support her better when she needs time to process her emotions. Sending love and good energy to everyone. Thank you. Aw, that was so nice, Danny. I feel like there's always one massive communicator and then one person who needs like some time. That's my partnership. Same. Which one are you Rosie? I think I already know the answer. I'm the over communicator. Yes, ding, ding, ding, ding, ditto. I mean, really, did we really need to say. We did. The audience is like, guys, we know, it's you two. Yes, so okay. We are just like Danny then, Danny, we can absolutely relate to you. What's interesting is that I really feel for the people that need space. And that need, right? That need time to process and to really think things through. And I think that in my current relationship, it was very much that way in the beginning. I would go into problem solving mode within seconds of an issue, right? I wanted to talk it...
