Talk Thirty to Me Episode Eighteen: Failure to Compromise in a Relationship – A Failures Mentality?

This week, Turg and Randy discuss the new album The Chief by Jidenna and using the themes surrounding this powerful freshman release, including…

pursuing relationships post-breakup, getting invited to the ex’s wedding. Why a relationship in retrospect brings a lot of unnecessary anxiety into the fray. How the 20s relationship mentality will only set you up for failure in your 30s, prioritizing relationship goals and career goals – which comes first and can we live with the decisions we make. Maybe we always look to the past for sorrow, when do you take the next step in discussing your future with your significant other, day dream relationship standing versus actual relationship standing, how society dictates the way we interpret our roles and expectations in a relationship, holding on – readjusting in a relationship to just make it work.

The guys also debate how sabotaging relationships to by neglecting the basic needs of a relationship to survive is a reality in most of our lives. The mentality behind how a relationship is constructed – and at the same time deconstructed – because of where we are in our lives at the time the relationship.

Turg goes on to discuss how he almost sabotaged his own relationship by incorrectly applying the old saying, “Happy wife happy life” to his own life by letting things get out of control. Then the guys embark upon story time by addressing how what Turg did may have been the wrong approach to a way toward achieving compromise.

Turg and Randy debate the varying perspectives around the selfless and selfish approach to relationships. How marriage changes everything and why you cannot assume you will maintain the same expectations throughout. How Turg and Randy view the varying perspectives behind compromise in a relationship when a relationship is in trouble.

Why divorce and breakups are dramatically different when perceived by others. Randy discusses the ‘Come back tour” and why revisiting relationships is a bad idea. How Randy tries to identify with his mistakes in past relationships and he reflects on why we miss opportunities based on contributions to the relationship. Why reflecting on a relationship and focusing on the duality of energy makes a difference in successes and failures in relationships.

How settling for a relationship that just doesn’t work is a failures mentality. How a Justin Timberlake reference makes an appearance on the show and why it’s relevant. Why failure in relationships is the reality of the world in which we live. Finally, find out how a Talladega Nights reference makes an appearance on the show and how it’s actually relevant to Turg reaching hard to make a point, and how the guys wrap by getting back to heated debates around percentages.
