Toxic and mercurial

That these 2 are separated and seeing other people is actually the least of their problems. Hearing the patterns of habitual toxicity by both people here made this the most pessimistic episode from either season of Where Should We Begin. Nothing was revealed about the couple's post-therapy future but I just can't imagine it having ended well. They couldn't even keep from attacking under the best possible circumstances.

This is my life

This is my favorite episode by far and has resonated more with me than any other. I love this entire series and I feel like it is helping me learn and grow so much. I don’t know what it is but hearing about other people facing the same problems makes me feel like it is more possible to manage my own. Thank you Esther Perel, Audible and the couples for sharing this with all of us!

Good self-critique of a therapist's own session!

I didn't enjoy the couple's story as much as some of the others, but the author's commentary on things she wished in retrospect that she had done differently was very interesting!

Esther is my personal hero

Esther always seems to help me see a different perspective and a different way of looking at various problems. Such a legend.

Captivating real relationship dynamics and hurdles

Loved this! You can learn so much about yourself, your own relationships, and relate to the struggles of the patients themselves.
