I’m Sick of Feeling Like My Sex Addict Partner’s Mom!
In this episode of Overcoming Betrayal and Addiction, Dr. Rob and Tami first take a question from a listener looking to fast-track their ability to gain intimacy and closeness with others. They then hear from someone whose husband has been in recovery for five months but still operates in a manipulative way, and another whose partner betrayed them in the same manner that was done to them. This leads to a conversation on healthy boundaries and self-care. Dr. Rob explains Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, and we hear from a listener that wants to see more real changes in their partner just beyond apologies with not much forward momentum.
