    8 Ways to Water Your Relationship Garden - TWR Podcast #89

    8 Ways to Water Your Relationship Garden - TWR Podcast #89

    Relationships are a lot like gardens – they require consistent care and attention in order to thrive. We often admire beautiful gardens all while being ignorant or oblivious to the work that it took to create such a garden. Relationships are quite similar, aren't they? Just like that beautiful garden, it’s easy to see the beauty in someone else’s relationship and to want that thing for ourselves. This is where we might fall into the notion of the “grass being greener on the other side.” But the truth follows something more like what Neil Barringham said, “the grass is greener where you water it.”

    Whether you’re newly dating or have been together for years, there are steps you can take to cultivate a strong and healthy partnership.

    In this episode, Pye and Dr. Glen provide tips for how to keep your relationship grass wonderfully green. It’s worth noting that we’re going to focus on marriage/partnerships, but most of these tips are going to be applicable to ALL of your long-term relationships.

    In this episode, Pye & Dr. Glen dive into the different types of stonewalling, how it affects a relationship, and how you can stop it if you find yourself stonewalling or being stonewalled.

Response to Butchers and Liars part one and two

I stumbled upon The 12 Week Relationship Podcast with Pye Jirsa and Dr. Glenn Hong while searching for clarity about some of the public statements Jordan Peterson had made in regards to gender.
Without knowing anything about the hosts, I was pleasantly surprised at their ability to disagree, and still validate each other’s points of view.
When it comes to the modern day admiration for people like Jordan Peterson who just “say it like it is,” I do not believe that being fearless of ridicule makes his words worthy of a platform. Equating terms like “LatinX” to “intersectionality” is a false equivalence that serves to signal to like minded listeners that attempts to understand and create words for new ideas is a bogus liberal agenda. This isn’t brave or admirable. I am now curious if a growing number of JP’s followers are similarly infatuated with the way he says things regardless of what he is actually saying. I wouldn’t advise, admiring someone without first understanding the words that are coming out of their mouth.

The toilet humor is annoying

I like the intent of their content but the back and forth side smashing and teasing eachother is annoying. They also often use toilet humor that reminds me of a 12 year old boy .. literally they were going around and around with a burp and fart analogy.
Just stick to being professional. You have valuable perspectives but you are ruining your professional brand.
