Episode 35: Issues (“Issues”)

Oh the issues we take with the song “Issues” by Julia Michaels!

“I’ve got issues, but you’ve got em too. Give yours all to me and I’ll give mine to you.”

Uh-oh.

Someone forgot to study relationship truth 101: it is not your partner’s job to solve your personal issues and it is not your job to solve your partner’s.

This lesson is only forgotten every day in most relationships, so our friend Julia is in good company.

Thankfully, Rich is here to make some much needed improvements to this song!

Join us as we discuss the inner work necessary to forge a strong relationship.

 

Rich’s re-written lyrics:

I’m zealous about mental wellness
When I’m not things don’t go well
And it’s quite easy to tell
I get angry, but still know that we
Can thrive despite that
‘Cause it’s common to feel that

You don’t, need to indulge me
And if you did, maybe I’d indulge me too
No I need, to work on me
Cause who I am, baby it affects you too

Cause I got issues
I’m working through
Dealing with myself
I know can help us too
Not sad or gory
To each have problems
Cause it only helps our love
To work to solve them

Yeah I got issues
I’m working on them cause I need you

This’lll be my purpose
Will I be perfect, no.
I won’t quit even so
And you’re not perfect
But I am worth it
For you to deal with your own stuff
And that helps us be enough

And we’ll be, judgement free
Cause when we do I makes us feel good and free
And ‘cuz we are in love we
Try chose a positive point of view

Cause we got issues
We’re working through
Dealing with ourselves
I know can help us too
Not sad or gory
To each have problems
Cause it only helps our love
To work to solve them

Yeah I got issues
I’m working on them cause I need you
