    #304 Personalities, Preferences, and Perspectives

    It is really easy for us to create dysfunctional and destructive relationships when we haven't learned how to respect and honor others' personalities, preferences, and perspectives.  These three things are at the heart of who people are, and when we reject these things, we reject them.  And when we reject them, we shut down the opportunity to create deeper friendship and intimacy.

    #303 The Thought Model Reteach

    Although I talk about the thought model and use it here on the podcast, it's been a while since I talked about the basic parts of it and how they work together.  On this podcast we will be looking at how the circumstances in our lives are neutral, how we have thoughts about those circumstances, how those thoughts create feelings, how our feelings fuel our actions, and then how our actions create the ultimate results in our lives.  When we can understand this model more clearly, we have the tools to clean up our lives and our relationships in ways we never imagined.  And it all starts with a thought. . . huh!  Who knew?!?

    #302 Gottman’s Four Horsemen – Destroying Relationships Has Never Been So Easy

    John Gottman is a brilliant relationship expert who has done an amazing amount of research on what makes marriages successful.  He has identified four elements of dysfunctional behavior in marriages that are especially destructive, and he calls these The Four Horsemen.  These four elements are criticism, contempt, defensiveness, and stonewalling.  In this podcast we are digging into these four behaviors and learning how to identify and clean them up in our own relationships.

    #301 The Primitive Brain Problem

    Our primitive brain does some amazing things for us.  However, if we aren't paying attention, it can keep us stuck and struggling to create the kind of life we really want to have.  When we learn to manage our primitive brain and engage our pre-frontal cortex, we have the capacity to really show up for our life in the ways we want.  On today's podcast, we're learning just how to use your brain to do what you really want to do.

    #299 Love Is Not a Reward

    #299 Love Is Not a Reward

    I think a lot of us grew up believing, at some level, that love was a reward for good behavior.  And yet, when looked at through the eyes of God, love is never a reward.  Love is actually the first and greatest commandment, it is a law. The law of love teaches us that regardless of how others act, regardless of how we're treated, regardless of what is said or done, our responsibility in every situation is to learn how to love.  That's a tall order, to be sure, and it is also the way to find our greatest happiness and best relationships ever.

So Helpful!!

Tanya has been helping me “grow up into middle age” with her amazing podcasts! The concepts she shares encourage me to take time for self-reflection and make needed adjustments. My relationships are getting stronger and I am “showing up” better since finding her!
Thank you, Tanya!❤️

Thank you thank you for your podcast. I’m quite sure we were trained at the same place (LCS) because your podcasts speak to how I think.
Which is great bc you’re podcasting on the exact things I’m looking for support with! I’m so grateful to have found your show. Thank you!!
Oh and furthermore, can I give an extra credit star? I’m also a podcaster and so, really appreciate the quality and breadth of content that you provide. Thank you so much! I’ve got to get back to listening 🙏🏽 Susie Pettit
