“I feel strongly that the work we do on ourselves is the greatest work we can do for our relationships.”
“It takes getting really grounded in yourself and going into these difficult conversations with the goal of being able to understand rather than being understood. It takes a lot of trust in your partner that you will eventually be heard and eventually get your chance to speak about how you feel.”
“It takes a healthy dialouge and healthy conversations to be able to listen, have the conversation, and come up with a solution that feels good for both of you.”
“When things are hard, we focus on the things that are hard. It spirals and builds negative on negative, so you have to get yourself out of that loop and choose to see what is actually working.”
