I Don’t Want To Hear About Your Job !!!!
I’ve noticed that people fall into 2 categories when it comes to talking about work. One group wants to hear about their partner’s work, the people, and the details about the job. They want to feel involved. The others do not, I repeat, do not want to hear about work and feel like screaming, “Leave it at the office!” Which is healthier? Here is one way to think about it……..
When 131 employed men and women answered questions about the topic, “Do you talk about work at home?” the results were clear. Those who shared a positive work experience with their spouse or partner at home had created positive feelings and higher life satisfaction. I don’t know about the grumps. The researchers didn’t report on people who complained about work. Did they feel better? Maybe they felt heard, maybe they were able to come up with ways of solving the work problems, or maybe they ruined the evening for everyone.
