What to tell a coworking partner who tells you they’re pregnant?
I know this is probably going to sound crazy.
It’s a very personal question, and I’m going to try to be as straightforward as possible.
But I do have to make one thing very clear.
I’ve had plenty of friends who’ve told me that when they’ve had a miscarriage or been told they had a baby, it’s been because they didn’t know what to do with their pregnancy.
So the advice that they’ve given me is this: Don’t worry.
Don’t let it affect your work, your life, your relationship with your partner, your friends, your family, your health.
The only thing that you should worry about is not letting it hurt.
I do believe that, when you’ve been in a relationship and there’s a miscarriage, that’s not a problem, but it’s a big problem for a lot of couples when it’s something that’s traumatic.
So, here’s my advice: If you’ve had one of these, you should ask yourself this question: Am I willing to let this happen to my partner?
You have to be able to say: No, no, no.
Because I can’t have someone who I know is going to have to tell me they’re going to be pregnant again.
So be willing to admit that you’re a little nervous about this pregnancy, but then say, You know what?
It’s not going to happen.
It can’t be that bad, right?
And if you can say that, it can be a huge relief for them.
So that’s the kind of advice I would give.
And it’s not just for a coworkers’ pregnancy.
If you have an intimate partner, it might be a good idea to talk to them about how this pregnancy affects their relationship, because they may not be ready to let you go.
That might be the most common kind of pregnancy-related question.
They might feel like they have a right to tell you they’ve been having sex or masturbating, and you might feel pressured to tell them that you don’t want to talk about it.
That is totally fine.
I’m not saying that, and it’s totally normal for them to feel that way, but that’s a totally different thing.
So again, just be open.
And you can ask them if they want to share this with you, but you can also let them know that they don’t have to, and they can share this, and tell them to stop.
If they say no, then they should just move on.
And they should do the same for you.
So let’s be clear: You’re not forcing them to have sex.
You’re just giving them a little time to be OK about having sex.
But they are your partner.
And if they do want to have a sexual relationship with you or your partner or your friends or your family or your co-workers, they have the right to do that.
And that includes giving you their permission to have one.
They don’t owe you anything.
They are not going anywhere.
So when they do decide to have an open sexual relationship, then that’s their choice.
And as I’ve said before, you’re not going back to the relationship that you had before you were pregnant, because that’s what happened.
So you have to do what you can to keep your relationship going.
If that means that you’ve got to tell your partner you have a miscarriage and then they’re not ready to tell their partner about it, then you have every right to refuse that.
So just be ready, and if that’s something you have any kind of problem with, then just let that go.
If it’s just that they’re uncomfortable talking about something, then let that be a conversation, and then get over it.
But if it’s that you just feel like you have something to hide, then I would urge you to let them talk to you about it and then share that with them.
Then you can start to figure out what’s going on.
If I could give one piece of advice, it would be to say no to anything that seems like a request to talk.
Because when you’re talking, it sounds like you’re trying to get something out of someone else.
So if you’re saying, You’re going through a period where you’re really trying to make your relationship work, and your partner is just trying to figure things out for themselves, that can be really scary.
So really, the best thing to do is just keep that to yourself.
It sounds crazy, but I know there are times when it sounds crazy.
So instead of asking, What do you want?
you should say: I want to make my relationship work.
And the answer is: I know that you know that I don’t.
So I know you know what you want, and so if you don.
And then you can
