Today’s topic is a juicy one: blended families, exes, and the drama that can come from those interchanges. Today’s question came about from sitting next to this lovely woman on the plane. She and her husband were sitting next to me. Her name is Debbie. She complained that her husband never stands up for her and never defends her. I asked, “Well, can you tell me what you mean by that?”
And she told me the following story: “Frank and his ex-wife have a few children.
Doctor Neha: Welcome to TalkRx with Doctor Neha. I have Jess here in Bali, and she wanted to ask some communication questions. She’s brave enough to do it so that all of you can learn while she’s in the hot seat. So welcome, Jess.
Jess: Thank you.
Doctor Neha: So tell me what are you thinking about? What else could we be thinking about with our watermelon and papaya drinks?
Jess: What I’ve been thinking about is when you’re in relationships and you really feel like a relationship is coming to an end.
Welcome to TalkRx with Doctor Neha. I’m filming from Bali. Today’s episode is about giving feedback and that ping-pong game of blame that can sometimes happen when you let someone know of an issue that could be improved.

Doctor Neha: Welcome to Talk Rx with Doctor Neha. I am so excited because today we’re filming from Bali. I’m sure you can tell by the drinks and our relaxed atmosphere and the plants behind us.

Doctor Neha: Welcome to Talk Rx with Doctor Neha. We’re filming in Bali this week, and I have a special guest, Cassie, who actually lives here. I had the pleasure of meeting her recently at an ecstatic dance experience. Welcome, Cassie
Cassie: Thank you, Neha.
Doctor Neha: Tell me what are you thinking about. Why did you show up to talk about communication?
Cassie: Well, something has popped into my life, into my awareness recently.
Welcome to TalkRx with Doctor Neha from Bali. I am so thrilled to be spending a long time in Bali and filming from here. One of the questions that keeps coming up in various forms is, “How do I know if I can trust someone else—trust a new place, trust a new boss, trust my partner after they’ve betrayed me?” It got me thinking about this word trust. How is it that you know whether you can trust someone else or some other place?
Doctor Neha: Welcome to TalkRx with Doctor Neha. We’re filming in Bali, and I have a special guest, Salma. Salma lives in London and is travelling in Bali. As soon as we started talking, she said she would be willing to ask her question live and be brave so all of you could learn as she learns. Welcome, Salma.
Doctor Neha: Hi and welcome to Talk Rx with Doctor Neha. I’m in Bali, and I met a new friend, Jess. Jess is a chef on a yacht. It’s her J-O-B, and I was so fascinated when I heard that. I asked her if she struggles with any communication questions. She was very open and willing and brave to say, “I’ll give it a go, and let other people learn while I learn.” So thank you for your bravery.
