The Grumpy Girlfriend Podcast

Katrin Berndt

Here’s what I know about you: You’re in a good relationship with a partner that you love, yet you spend most of your time feeling grumpy, frustrated, and out of control of your emotions. You overthink everything and always imagine the worst-case scenario. This leads to you bottling up your emotions in an attempt to make them go away, resulting in an explosion, completely disproportionate to the problem at hand. Welcome to The Grumpy Girlfriend Podcast. Here, we will cover everything you need to know in order to access that fun, care-free, and independent version of yourself you’ve always wanted to be. Hosted by Katrin Berndt, LCS Certified Life Coach.
