I’ve said it a million times – love isn’t enough. Strong relationships require work, and ongoing maintenance to stay strong and connected. And yet, much to the chagrin of my fiance and I, Dr. John Schinnerer, even though we have been together for 6 years, and engaged for 2, we still get stuck. We hate this human aspect of ourselves, that despite being trained in psychology and emotional awareness, guiding others in how to manage the roadblocks in their relationships, and teaching the skills of effective communication, that we still experience impasses in our relationship that feel sticky and hard. In this episode, John and I vulnerably share some of our difficult struggles that we’ve gone through as well as how we got through them, and continue to get through them. We have learned to revisit old challenges so we can learn more about our patterns and our needs when we feel stuck as well as how to be patient, curious and compassionate to ourselves and each other when we fail to meet the mark of our intentions. If you’re in a relationship, you won’t want to miss this episode!
