Being intentional in how you connect to and show up for your partner Ep. 003
I’m sure you have heard the saying, relationships take hard work and that is true, but what can be difficult is being intentional in your relationship consistently. When we’re really stressed out or going through things or even when we’re in a good place and we just kind of become complacent, I think that’s where the hard work comes in.
Is your relationship suffering from “roommate syndrome”? Ep. 002
We’re going to talk all about connection and the state of your relationship. There are a lot of times that people will come in with what I call roommates syndrome and I see people who are either good roommates or bad roommates. What I mean by this is couples who pretty much only talk about logistics that may be getting their kids to their practices or appointments or for their pets or for their family outings or whatever it is. It’s it’s very logistical oriented and there’s hardly any real emotional connection and talk. Obviously we have to talk about the practicalities of life but if that’s all people are connecting on, that’s a problem.
