Here's what I know about you: You're in a good relationship with a partner that you love, yet you spend most of your time feeling grumpy, frustrated, and out of control of your emotions. You overthink everything and always imagine the worst-case scenario. This leads to you bottling up your emotions in an attempt to make them go away, resulting in an explosion, completely disproportionate to the problem at hand. Welcome to The Grumpy Girlfriend Podcast. Here, we will cover everything you need to know in order to access that fun, care-free, and independent version of yourself you've always wanted to be. Hosted by Katrin Berndt, LCS Certified Life Coach.

    30. The Fairytale Relationship: Dreamy or Destructive?

    30. The Fairytale Relationship: Dreamy or Destructive?

    If thoughts create feelings and no other human can make us feel anything, does that mean that love and romance and all the fairytale things we all dream of go out the window? This kind of black and white thinking is the brain's way of saving energy when learning new things, but as you guys know by now, this podcast is not about saving energy. It's about growing through the discomfort. And sometimes, that discomfort comes from nuanced thinking.

    What is the main difference between the fairytale narrative we all grow up with and the way I teach about relationships, and which one is truly more negative and counter-productive when it comes to the ultimate goal of love and connection?

    29. Common Misunderstandings About "Thoughts Create Feelings"

    29. Common Misunderstandings About "Thoughts Create Feelings"

    When I first started learning about these concepts, my brain would argue with them a lot and come up with all the reasons why it makes no sense and why it might even be harmful to think about things this way. So if that's what your brain is doing, totally normal. Promise. Or at least as normal as I am hehe.

    This week, I dive into 6 common misunderstandings about the work that I do, about thoughts creating feelings, what it means, and how to relate to neutral facts in the world.

    28. Emotional Childhood: The Root Cause of Grumpiness

    28. Emotional Childhood: The Root Cause of Grumpiness

    Did you know that almost all adults spend their entire lives in emotional childhood? This is how we are taught from a very young age to relate to our emotions and the world around us... but it is also the quickest way to strip yourself of all your power.

    In this week's episode, I talk about emotional childhood, what it means, and why it is beneficial to learn how to take responsibility and ownership of your own emotions in your relationships, especially if you're considering leaving a relationship you're unhappy in.

    27. From Self-Judgment to Self-Evaluation and Growth

    27. From Self-Judgment to Self-Evaluation and Growth

    It's a lot easier to identify the habits and behaviors we have that we don't like than to figure out how to change them and make it all better. This is a perfect environment for self-judgment to come alive. When we want to stop doing something but we don't know how... we revert to beating ourselves up in hopes that it'll somehow work.

    In today's episode, I talk about how to change self-judgment into self-evaluation and growth so that you can start focusing on the future. That way you can figure out exactly what needs to be worked on for you the be the person and partner you want to be.

    26. For Couples: "I Get to Do Whatever I Want" Explained

    26. For Couples: "I Get to Do Whatever I Want" Explained

    Has your partner ever used "your thoughts create your feelings" against you? Do they rejoice when they find out that they don't actually have to follow the manual you have for them? Then this episode is for you... and your partner.

    It's not uncommon to think that if we're not responsible for anyone else's feelings and we get to do whatever we want, that we would go out and be assholes to everyone we meet. But I want you to question whether or not that's actually true.

    25. My Partner Doesn't Think It's a Problem

    25. My Partner Doesn't Think It's a Problem

    Have you ever experienced problems in your relationship that your partner is completely confused by? They don't agree at all that it's a problem and you're confused why they can't see what you see so clearly.

    In this week's episode, I talk about this difference in opinion, where problems actually come from, and how to navigate a solution to a problem the two of you simply can't agree on. All of the examples of solutions I mention in this episode are available to you at all times, but they might not always apply and might not always be appropriate. That is for you to decide.
