Ep. 182 Relationship Strain of COVID Part 3: Our Differing Values Drive Us Apart—How to Bridge the Division with Kate Lambie, LCPC

In this final segment of our “Relationship Strain of COVID” series, psychotherapist Kate Lambie joins me again for a discussion on values and how they impact our individual responses to the various elements of the pandemic. Spoiler alert—it all goes back to safety and security! We also consider the reality that at times, we may share the same values yet choose to act upon them in different ways.

We ask these questions and more!

  • Are bodily autonomy and medical freedom selfish during a pandemic?
  • Are mandates a violation of civil liberties? Or, do they make sense in an emergency?
  • If friends seem unwilling to find common ground, might they be reacting in this manner because they feel unsafe?
  • How does clarifying our values develop empathy and compassion for one another?

Kate and I see the pandemic from opposing vantage points. We share our personal struggle to maintain intimacy and connection during these intense past two years. Join us to hear the inside scoop—including the arguments!—of how we’ve tried to remain close despite our discrepant positions. We hope our journey will help you navigate these most challenging times. Disagreements need not pull relationships apart. In fact, healthy conflict management can increase intimacy and authentic connection.
