    How to Empathize With Your Partner, Even When You Don’t Agree: Jocelyn Solo

    How to Empathize With Your Partner, Even When You Don’t Agree: Jocelyn Solo

    Coming off of last night’s webclass on “Communication Mastery”, many people were intent to bring more empathy into their relationship. The very next feeling however was “being empathetic is not easy when I don’t agree with my partner.” 
    This most likely is the case for you as well. Though being empathetic to our partner’s experience is a true expression of love, it isn’t easy especially when you haven’t practiced it. 
    In this one-on-one episode with Jocelyn, you will hear how to bring more empathy to your partner so that you can be that true expression of love and be that example of a truly empowered couple!

    Discussing Boundaries in a Way That is Freeing, Not Controlling

    Discussing Boundaries in a Way That is Freeing, Not Controlling

    Establishing boundaries as a couple can sometimes be a point of tension. It can feel like a battle between wanting to feel security, but also not feeling controlled by the other. The thing is, boundaries are critical to agree upon, so you both feel respected, loved, and also fulfilled.
    Most couples discuss boundaries as: expressing commands, arguing repeatedly, a resistance to feeling controlled. Yet, they can be discussed in a loving, respectful way that feels like a win-win agreement for you both to create a more connected and collaborative relationship. 
    In this episode you will hear some areas in which boundaries are important to establish, plus gain the steps to discuss boundaries in a way that is freeing, not controlling.

    What to do When You Disagree on a BIG Decision

    What to do When You Disagree on a BIG Decision

    It can feel frustrating or unsettling when you and your partner disagree on a big decision. For some couples, this can lead to making no decision and staying in a standstill for a while, which is also not ideal for you.
    For others, it can lead to tense conversations, full blown arguments, and feeling like you’re limited by the other person. But it doesn’t have to go that way…
    Whether it’s parenting styles, financial decisions, where to move, when to have kids, which job offer to take, etc….you CAN make decisions in a way that feels better and leads to an even better outcome than you imagined.
    In today’s episode, you’ll hear 6 Key Elements to Making a Big Decision Together. Dive in and you might want to take notes :)

    The Danger of Being Overly Considerate Towards Your Partner: Aaron Solo

    The Danger of Being Overly Considerate Towards Your Partner: Aaron Solo

    It’s a great personal trait to be considerate of your partner (especially of their needs from the last episode). However there is a danger of being overly considerate or overly pleasing in your relationship. 
    You might not have ever considered this or realized that it was happening to you, but the effect can be very disruptive. It can make you feel unhappy, unfulfilled, and even disengaged from your partner. 
    In this solo episode with Aaron, you will be able to recognize this pattern so you can show up even better for yourself and consequently as an even better partner!

    Have Conflicting Needs? 5 Principles to Work Through This Together

    Have Conflicting Needs? 5 Principles to Work Through This Together

    Of course you know that you and your partner are not exactly the same. Yet, how often do you expect them to fulfill all of your needs? Or even how often you assume that they should just know or desire to meet your needs? 
    When you get to a place where you have conflicting needs, this can feel as if you have to sacrifice or be discouraged that your needs won’t be met. When we asked on IG what some of the common conflicting needs for you were, we heard back:
    Togetherness vs separateness  Physical touch vs quality time Time to talk and connect at the end of the day vs quiet time to decompress after working a long day. Working vs leading the kids and home But there are ways, in this case you will hear 5 principles, so that you can work through your conflicting needs together and be sure that you do not have to sacrifice or give up on having your most important needs met in your relationship.

So much relatable content!

We’ve searched for relevant content to help us grow in our day to day. As a husband, father, and business owner with my wife, the struggle is 24/7. Their podcast is relatable on all levels. A must follow for those striving to level up as a couple and individually.

Very informative

These podcasts are a must if you are in a relationship. It lays things out and gives information that is critical in long lasting relationships. The Freeman’s have methods that I’ve never heard or used before, and they work.

True story!

We have been following the Freeman’s for a few months now, I can honestly say they single handily saved my marriage. Their podcasts, the Facebook group, their FREE book just pay shipping! The fact that they take the time to message us back. They are so busy but they still take the time to message each person back to help them through whatever it is. Rebuilding trust is a huge thing in our marriage we had some infidelity the past year and the Freeman’s have honestly saved my marriage, they taught me have to patience, they taught me so many skills to rebuild trust they have given me life skills. I could literally go on for days about how much the Freeman’s have helped and empowered us and our relationship. They have given us and continue to give us many skills that can be applied to every day life not just in our relationship. I can not get enough of these podcasts, all the workshops, the couples assessment, the couples courses I just can’t get enough of it all. Thank you Jocelyn and Aaron we love you guys! You have become huge part of our lives, you’re basically family at this point. 💜🖤
